    Yeap that's right. For digital, you should also learn to read the histogram to help when the exposure is trickier.

    Spot metering is good when your concern is solely on a specific subject exposure.
    Matrix is the average of exposure on a picture which might not be what you want sometimes so one need to play around with the setting in the camera.

    Correct me if I am wrong. I am just a hobbyist.
    With spot metering you'll need to know where to meter (mid grey areas) or know how to compensate. It is not as straight forward as matrix/evaluative metering. Otherwise your exposure will be wrong.

    One easy way to get the exposure is to spot meter an 18% grey card under the same facing and lighting condition as your subject, and then use the metered values in manual mode.

    I'll normally take a shot and review it on the LCD.

    If it's over or under expose, I simply use the Exposure Compensation (i.e. EV) to correct.
