Went out to take some sunset photos this evening at Sulaman Bridge…wished I meet up some friends there. Anyway, since it is going to be Friday tomorrow, I wouldn’t want to take so much of your time reading my one cent thought for today.
Just a simple write-up tonight and this came up since I have received a lot of question whether metering is needed when taking portraiture under natural light. I don’t know about others but for me as long as you are working with natural light, metering is always needed.
So tonight, before we all go to bed, I am going to mumble about spot metering. Spot metering is where the lens read the light at the point where your camera is focus at ( follow focus point). Normally, as most textbook suggest, spot metering is most likely effective when you are trying to photograph portraiture on natural light as below (where I can read what is the value on every light tone on the face)
Sound so simple isn’t it…(well actually it is) just keep this one rule in your mind when it comes to spot metering, don’t be fooled by the dark background because it will easily cheat your metering if you make a wrong judgement.
That’s all for tonight…kopisanangan do dogotuong 🙂
