1. Shift the centre of your camera to the area of the background that you wish to meter from.

2. Hold down the SPOT meter button to get the reading for the area you intend to meter from.

3. Depress your shutter release button mid-way to lock the exposure you have just metered for.

4. Re-compose the shot to the desired angle and composition.

5. Depress the shutter release button fully to take the shot.

Go ahead, try it out. The results can be somewhat interesting.;)

Use mtd 1, method 2 only applies when using spot metering.
