Hi all,

This is my first post, great forum you have here. The question that I have might have been asked, I did a search but I could not find the specific answer.

Can someone please explain (in steps) how spot metering is done using a camera which has inbuilt spot meter? I know this is a dumb question, but I am not looking for an answer explaining the concept of spot metering. I only want to know the steps of getting the right exposure using spot metering. Do I point at a part of the scene and take the meter reading? which reading is this? is it the shutter speed and appreture? I know these might be very basic newbie questions, but I would like to learn.

thank you
