5D3 and spot metering
Nov 5, 2012



Hi, 5D3 test shot.  Tough exposure I know so I switched to spot metering.  The boat fit 100% inside the focus square.  With spot metering it should be 1.5% of the meter, in the center.  That being said, I think the boat is under exposed.  Is back-lighting so extreme that even the sport meter isn't enough?  I know this is a tough exposure and sometimes the photographer has to take over from the equipment.  Thoughts?
