Hey, thanks for your interest in this article. Camera metering is a very important topic to understand as a photographer. In an effort to ‘streamline’ my website, all of my photography articles/posts have been moved to my new photography site – The Nerdy Photographer. You can click over to that site to find the full article.
Do you want to take photos that look more like what you imagined they would look like in your head? Do you wonder why your pictures don’t come out the way you thought they would? Well, I can tell you who the culprit probably is – your camera! Your camera is DUMB! Yes, it is a sophisticated piece of equipment that can process complex image data in fractions of a second, but does it know what picture you want to take? No. It does what it is told.
