I'm just getting to know my digi camera and am taking photos for my cities newspaper just for photo credit. I'm having trouble understand what to do to meter the exposure.
I have a Sony Cyber-shotDSC-F707 that has multi-patterning, center-weighted, and spot meter options. My question is how do I meter an area, do I press the shutter halfway down when pointing at what I want to meter or what. Then after that do I just point and shoot at what I want to shoot.And will the sameexposure stillbe were I point. ( I know this probably isn't right and that's why I'm here, to get some help)
I'm very confused on this subject and would appreciate all the help I could get.
