Spot Metering --- Sony RX10 III Frequent Under & Over Exposure

Most product photographs are taken against white backgrounds. How do the pros do it?

I would have to guess that they use spot metering on the relevant part of the subject and maybe spontaneously bracket the exposure to be sure. Maybe they even shoot raw. Bottom line: If one uses matrix/multi metering, the camera will average in the white background making the subject dark.

just my 0.02,
