Marco answers these questions in this episode:
1. Hi Marco, after many years of photography, I’m still uncertain which exposure metering mode I should use on my camera. My camera has three modes (matrix metering, center-weighted metering, and spot metering). Which one do you use as default mode and when would you switch to one of the other modes?
Question from: Kyle, Chicago, Illinois
2. Hi Marco, first of all, I want to thank you and Scott for all of the great education, inspiration, and technical explanation that you provide each month at PPN. And your shows also inspired me to print more of my images in the future. I currently use a small Canon print & scan combination, but I want to buy a photo printer and would like to get your advice what I should look out for. Thank you and please continue to inspire us.

3. Hola Marco, I am really inspired by the inspirational photographers that you have interviewed and introduced at PPN. I have looked at many of their images and this has challenged me to take an iconic photo one day. I am an avid amateur and know how to take good photos. Some of my images have been printed in a local newspaper already. I know that this is not an easy question to answer, but what can I do to achieve my dream one day?
