Metering, whether evaluative/matrix, center-weighted or spot, is fairly straightforward. Check out these links for the basics:.





Are you sure you didn't mean "exposure" as opposed to metering? That's a whole different can of worms...

No I know about exposure and read a lot about it but the metering is always the not so pbvious part or the not very much explained part..I mean like the exact differences between the metering modes..when to use each..etc etc....

I would like very much to have any book that discuss the issue of metering in details...

I will check the links..thanks:)..

The best info on metering I have found is in the video from Photoshopcafe, Perfect Exposure for Digital Photography. I highly recommend it. I have yet to find a book that covers the info as effectively as in that video...

I just about only use spot metering. Most decent dSLRs have superb spot meters, better than my old hand held meters and more accurate. If I want to average, I quickly meter several spots and decide whether to open or stop down from my subject..

If I want an incidence reading, I spot my hand in the same light as the subject and know that this reading is one stop lighter than 18% ND grey. I set accordingly, usually opening a stop. Green grass is usually dead on..

The trick is making sure what you're metering is in the same light as your subject. For example if you're doing a portrait outdoors in natural light and the sun is not directly striking your subjects face, you would not use the value green grass would give in direct sun. You'd look around for grass in the same light as the face. Take a reading and shoot the subject with that setting. Chimp and correct as needed. For additional shots, I don't meter again unless the light changes. This way you're never fooled by backlight.Cheers, Craig..
