personally, i don't use a fill light all that often, altho i do often bounce a bit of the main back in from wherever i want to fill from. but i don't usually meter it. i just kinda move whatever i'm using to bounce some fill in or out to taste. (by chimping the shots.) for back, hair, or sidelights, i like to see them anywhere from 2 or 3 tenths of a stop hotter than the main to even hotter depending on what i'm trying to accomplish in terms of backlighing and/or highlights.
