Playtrumpet was watching my videos on the camera meter and metering modes and asked says:
“Great video. The only thing I’d add, for clarity, is that metering modes are not relevant when shooting in manual mode, right?”
And this is a great question, because it does, and does not matter at the same time.
It matters because changing the metering mode changes how the camera acts, but it doesn’t because changing how the camera acts doesn’t change the photo you’re trying to create.
It’s an important distinction, and you can get the full explanation in today’s video.
Your camera is an amazing tool, but it’s no good to you if you don’t know how to use it!
