Learn By Doing – Metering picture with 1/2 black and 1/2 white

O.k. I am definitely surprised by the outcome. I thought they would somehow balance each other out so the black stayed black and the white stayed white. All three images were taken at f/16 100ISO on a tripod. I felt the black looked black, but thought the white had a bit of gray to it.

8.0 seconds








Next introduce the gray card!








This last one was taken (using the gray card) at shutter speed 15.0 seconds which I thought looked more like white.
