Spot Metering in the Shade

Here’s a tip for taking a photo in partial shade of something you really want to capture. Set your metering to spot metering and focus on the lighted area you want. The unlit background portion you don’t want should drop away into shadows with the image you want left well lit. Here’s an example.

Phacelia in Central Oregon high desert

Likes lilting chatter, understands parables, speaks fluent cat, conversational dog, likes, history, genealogy, sun, alpine plants, birds, Pacific NW. Wears pearls. Grateful for healing and mercy.

The proud great-great-great--great-great granddaughter of American Revolutionary War patriot, Pvt. Bladen Ashby and Loyalist Capt Peter Ruttan.
