now that is a surprise Smile evaluative metering I have always thought for general shots and not for one specific subject. Thankyou Ade_Osman, I will have a practise with that mode. I usually focus the area behind the eye and thorax region, but of course the eye is important for all species.

If you are doing landscape shoots, looking at the histogram and adjusting (using exposure compensation and grads) - does the metering mode actually matter ?

Does it matter for HDR?

for HDR you're gathering a range of data so use matrix/full frame metering - gets you the overall average for the scene. then bracket from that.

if you used spot for HDR you may get an overly dark/bright set of shots to process....

Not sure about insects, but for landscapes I generally use spot metering , as mentioned by earlier posters
