Question about adjusting and averaging exposure, pretty basic stuff
Hey guys, got a quick question. For those of you using a spot meter for landscapes, could you average 2 readings (one for the highlight and one for shadows) to get a correct exposure for the entire scene? For instance, say you spot meter a shaded area and get 1/20 at f16, and then measure a bright area and get 1/125 at f16, could you then assume that 1/50th f16 would be about the correct exposure? Are there better ways to do this, does anyone have any tips? I have always used cameras with TTL metering and just bought my first meterless camera, I guess this is what happens when your so used to being able to just spin dials until the camera tells you your good.
