    Great Video! Thanks for sharing!

    i was always working hard and also not much helpful works. This had kept me
    and my family poor.
    my mother introduced me to “importance” iPhone app by lokesh which directed
    me to set priorities for each of the goals i work come and how to delegate
    some unwanted works1

    now, i am lot more focused and my productive has increased a lot

    Great video as always.

  7. Erick Flores says:

    always on matrix

  8. soccergoaliegk1 says:

    will the manual tell you if your camera meters(for spot let say) only in
    the center of the screen or at the AF point? i’m on a canon 7D and i’ve
    tried spot metering with the AF point and the center of screen(and then
    recompose) and dont seem to see a difference. i dont use that often but i
    wanna make sure when i do i’m using it right. manual says the center of
    screen but i wanna make sure thats where is metering or if thats just
    listing as an example

    great videos they help me a lot keep them coming but sorry i shoot the
    canon 1d mark ii and the canon T1I

  10. Liesl Leonard says:

    Mine was on matrix but I am still getting frustrated with my photography,
    there is so much to think about. Which lens for which scene, which aperture
    etc the list is endless. I start to think I get it then all of a sudden I
    don’t!

  11. Vartan297 says:

    @rian, hey, your canon should spot meter where ever your focus point is I
    think.

  12. tuffestfish says:

    hi greg. which mode do you use for most of your shots? i use manual plus
    ttl flash most of the time. does that make sense? im thinking about shoting
    more in aperture priority, because i shot a lot for the newspaper. i lot of
    shots have to be taken very quickly. is aperture priority + ttl a good
    choice if you need to shot a lot – like on weddings? thanks for all the
    great videos, they are very good. perhaps you could make a vid talking
    about how you expose right in your everyday work (ur method)

  13. cochise82 says:

    ha, I just switched my camera to matrix mode right before watching this
    video…I feel awesome now! 🙂

  14. Gregory Cazillo says:

    If you say so:). Hopefully you are being careful what you are metering off
    of because of the example I gave at 8:57

  15. Leo Gacia says:

    Greg i have a question, I’ve been looking at the histogram of the photos i
    been taking, it looks flat on the right but the picture looks really good,
    now when i “push to the right” the picture looks over exposed. to push it
    to the right whats the first thing u consider, ur ISO, aperture or ur
    shutter. i normally change my ISO. thanx for the videos man they helped a
    lot

  16. Thomas Eklind says:

    Evaluative metering was set on camera

  17. Supiripanto says:

    I tend to use my camera in spot metering, since I’ve found that it makes me
    get what I want in the correct exposure… For example, the eyes of a girl,
    when they are under the shadow of her hair; and I look for overexposed
    lights.

    Greg your a legend 🙂 Keep em coming mate 😛

  19. Gregory Cazillo says:

    Yes it should tell you.

  20. Lance J. Reha says:

    Matrix and Nikon!!

  21. Gregory Cazillo says:

    Not often, once it is set for a particular scene it should stay the same
    unless the lighting changes. You should be conscious of it but not changing
    all the time.

  22. Gregory Cazillo says:

    Many factors that would be at play there, first thing you should check is
    your aperture. If you were at a shallow DOF it could be the issue…

  23. Matt Whitby says:

    Just checked. Mine was set to ‘evaluative’.

  24. Whatisright says:

    Hy Greg. How often do you change your metering mode while shooting?
