What do you typically user for metering settings?

I use all manual exposure so no metering

I think he is referring to metering mode. For me, its spot metering always.

 

Yes, I was referring to metering mode.

 

I would have expected the spot is used for Macro, and Matrix for wide angle.

Matrix metering for general photography, evaluate the result and adjust the EV to suit.

Underwater I may occasionally use Aperture priority with about -2/3 ev and matrix metering with manual flash in shallow water. But usually, as I said, all manual so metering mode is irrelevant.

Not for the way I work, maybe I'm the odd one out here. I have standard starting aperture and shutter for macro or wide, then make adjustments after looking at the result on the screen. The meter has no role in that workflow.

You have me intrigued now, how do you use the meter in manual mode?
