    1. Select 'Spot Metering'.

    3. Half press shutter to focus.
    4. Pan to the subject.
    5. Trigger.

    Cheers!!
    hi,
    if u don't refocus between steps 3 & 4, the cam will lock focus on the background.
    after step 3, why don't u use AE lock to get locked the background exposure and then use the fill flash to have the main subject properly lit between step 4 & 5.
    regards,

    Using the AE lock is the only way to lock the exposure, otherwise once you point to somewhere else, the exposure reading will be reset
    Idea got, execution not!
