    Metering

    What is your main method of in camera metering? Do you change it often or pretty much always use the same setting?

    Thanks William, I've pretty much just always used Evaluative. I'm going to start to explore the others.

    I mostly use centre weighted. Hardly ever matrix or spot.

    Centre weighted probably most frequently, followed by matrix then spot last.

    I use spot around 90% of the time and matrix 10%. I never find myself using centre-weighted for some reason.

    For street I use spot metering, almost everything else I use evaluative.
    My website has my most recent work - mostly music photography. I am a photographer for Violent Soho, The Smith Street Band and more.

    I also have some photography tips for those with new cameras.
