Hmmm interesting... I will have to play with that idea as normally I always spot meter a blown highlight...
"TO USE PARTIAL & SPOT METERING
Partial and spot metering give the photographer far more control over the exposure than any of the other settings, but this also means that these is more difficult to use-- at least initially. They are useful when there is a relatively small object within your scene which you either need to be perfectly exposed, or know that it will provide the closest match to middle gray. "
...from the link you sent... I spot meter an area of face that I know will over expose usually... and never use the matrix metering as it always looks nothing like natural light when I use it... and center weighted... more often than not, for me, results in blown highlights that I can't recover... but, I will have a play and take a look at the results!....
Thanks for the advice : )
