Quite often I'm finding that what I think I should be correct way of exposing for something is in fact incorrect.
For example, an area with lots of green in needs to be underexposed by a stop. Same for something that's mainly being metered as black.
White should be overexposed by a stop, such as snow or wedding dresses.
The thing is, what do you do when your'e in a church with a white dress and a black suit with brown seating yet you are focusing on the couple.
Do you change the metering to spot, take an exposure from the church walls, lock in and refocus?
It seems there must be an easier way, or rule of thumb. I've read and taken onboard the book 'understanding exposure' which was great, and for the majority it's been a great help. Maybe it's the metering I choose that throws me sometimes. But I am a little lost on this.
