For headshots what is the best type of metering
I usually use spot metering....sometimes center weighted.
A lot depends on how you're lighting the subject, but generally spot or centre-weighted metering is best.
i use center weighted set to 6mm when i use my sb-600 with TTL,
if you shoot M then no need for meetering
There is no one best. Done right, you'll use all 3 metering modes the camera has, but not all for the same image.
Not true. If you are using flash with ttl, the TTL will meter based on what the camera is set. If it is set to matrix the TTL will meter differently than if it's set to center weighted. I know this for a fact because I struggled with my macro lighting...full manual with TTL....my problems were fixed by switching from center weighted to matrix metering.
you are right, whenever you are set on TTL, no matter wich meetering mode you are on, it will change flash output to expose correctly.
when i shoot manual, i also set the flash on manual , my bad
