I guess you could say I'm new to photography, even though I've been taking photographs since a teenager, I've just recently gotten into the hard core digital photography. I've been reading up on techniques and what not, mostly right now learning about exposure. I've read that in high contrast situations using center-weighted or spot metering can give you a good reading so that you don't have clipping. And the way to do that is by metering the mid-tones. So I understand the concept. Execution is not there. I guess I just can't find the mid-tones? Does anyone understand this concept or have any suggestions?
