When spot metering white subjects (e.g. snow, white birds), do I adjust the EV on my camera + or - to get a proper exposure? I'm getting conflicting info.
I was taking a snap on a sunny day, and the subject was in front of light source and subject was shadowed out(or blackened) In this case is it better to use partial/spot metering mode (zoom in to face ...
Is there a difference between exposure and shutter speed, or are the terms interchangeable? I read that "If you use a quick shutter speed, you can just raise the exposure to compensate." Is this ...

Let say that we have the following values, as an example: Shutter speed: 1/40 Aperture: 2 ISO: 1000 How can I get the EV number for this exposure, extract (or add) an EV value (0.33, 0.66 etc.) and ...
