Why did you use spot metering?


Thanks Richard for the kind words.  I started using spot metering after having a camera that had onboard metering, I think Pentex Spotamac II or the Nikon FE that followed in the early 70s.  Sometimes I rely on the camera matrix and auto stuff but often I get into trouble when I do.  It is not the camera's fault. But rather my understanding of the new technology and lack of practice.

I did use matrix metering during the day, but did not look at the type of metering when I picked my keepers.  If there are none in there it was just the luck of the draw.
