Because, Ken, hands are...handy.  And there is not much variation in the
palm of your hand, unless it is dirty or you are a changeling. The back of
your hand may tan a lot, but not usually the palm because of the lack of
melanin there. But like Doris says, calibrate it with a gray card. Oh, and
wipe the sweat off, its not good for your camera. :-)
