Here's my question of the day: I have watched Cliff Mautner on Kelby Training, and I was very excited to try his techniques in harsh sun. Unfortunately it didn't work out so well. My problem was with the spot metering on my 5dmkii. I cranked up my shutter speed for the bright bright sun, but whenever I used the spot meter to expose for the face, the face was always underexposed.
I didn't try exposure compensation because I was afraid that it would affect the whole image and not just the face of the bride. Can anyone offer any suggestions what I can do?
Does the spot meter only work off of the center point? And does the spot metering follow the subject if I recompose?
Ugh. kinda frustrated here today. Thanks for any help!
