Hello everyone, I'm pretty confused about how to do the correct metering when shooting portrait.
I'm using D90 + Tamron 28-75/f2.8.
My current setting is "Single point metering" / "Single point focus", Aperture @ 2.8/3.2
Shutter speed usually 1/60.
Am I supposed to meter the face @ very close range (like a few inches) to the highlight area?
then AE lock, step back, focus, AF lock, re-compose and exposure?
Or I shall just stay away, meter the face, AE/AF lock together and re-compose , exposure?
I often find some area of the face is too bright (shoot at 3-4pm sunny afternoon), even if I try to use f4 with 1/80s.
