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 settings.

Next, photograph each one so that the black one looks black and the white one looks white. Put all four images in a post using an image gallery. Include a short description of your process. What did you use for the white and black surfaces? Describe in your own words why the black and white versions look so similar when shot with automatic settings? What did you do to get the black card to look black and the white card to look white.
