Thread: What kind of metering do you use for portrait shots?

  1. #1

    Default What kind of metering do you use for portrait shots?

    Evaluative, Centre-weighted or Spot? For both outdoor and indoor. Because sometimes if the model wears a very "bright" clothes I prefer to use spot metering.

    for average looking girls, use average metering,
    for plus size ah soh, use center weighted metering,
    for hot bebes, use spot metering,
    for sophisticated women, use matrix metering,

    hope these help.
