Yes, that's what I meant.  You meter so that the most important part of the
image comes out neither lost in shadow nor washed out in highlight.  If it's
snow, of course, you'd have to find something grayish at which to point the
meter so that the snow would still come out on the high side, or I guess you
could meter right on the snow and then increase exposure by 2-3 stops or so.
