Week 8 – Exposure – How Your Camera Meter Works

Acronym: TTL – Through the Lens

The meter in your camera is a reflected-light meter.

A reflected light meter averages the tones in the scene and selects the aperture and shutter speed values that will make the whole scene medium gray.

Find a piece of black card and a piece of white card. (Something flat that is black or white will do.) Take a picture of each one filling the frame with either black or white using automatic setti
ngs.

Create a post with the category Week 8 – Exposure. Include your two photos, one of the white card and one of the black card and a state in your own words why the two photos look so similar.
