Spot metering on a non central focus point.
Dec 19, 2013

Hello,

I usually use an other than the central focus point to track a person with AF - Continue because I want her partner to be visible but out of focus. I want spot metering also on her face because she moves around lights on a theatre scene, difficult situation. What can I do? The manual says to meter with the central point, lock exposure and then recompose. But I do not have time to do this because my subject is constantly moving.
