Camera Metering Modes

In order for cameras to tell how much light is available, they use a light meter. I came across this article on metering and realized I need to give it at try.

Again, more flowers.

Since I just learned the importance of white balance, before I tried metering, I wanted to balance my light.

Left is auto balanced, right is manual. I think the flower colors are more true in the right.

Now onto metering. It probably is easiest to see the difference when side by side, so I'll do that again.

Left: 16 points to measure the light. Middle: spot metering Right: Center Weighted
It's a subtle but noticeable difference.
