    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.
