comment Taking multiple shots in Nikon HDR mode
And the metering is quite complex, who knows exactly what goes on in there. It can detect backlit situations, recognize faces and adjust exposure accordingly. But I don't think in any situation it takes two objects from a scene and calculates separate exposure values. It first determines what exposure it would use for non HDR, based on the overall scene, then just does a +/- exposure compensation

If you use spot metering, I suppose it would take a +/- difference of that exposure value. If you use matrix metering, it would compute a balanced exposure value for the whole scene, then do the two shots again +/- from that calculated exposure

Generally speaking, the longer focal lengths tend to be better for portraits. If you check the focal-length and portrait tags, there have been a number of previous questions. photo.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/focal-length+portrait
