I have just got myself a copy of understanding, and it is quite intresting to say the least. However the first chapter has sort of thrown me. I understand the concept of haveing diferent combinations that could give the right , but he goes on about when the cameras lets you know that the is correct. does he mean when it is centered or what. if you take a picture of something that is white, and dont alow for the fact that the is taking a reading as if 18%grey, you dont get a completely white picture.
Is he asuming you know this or am i missing something. i usualy overexpose slightly or underexpose slightly depending on what i am shooting and what i am using. does this mean i am not getting a "corect "? is a correct if the picture looks how the scene did when you took the picture, for example if something is in shadow then it will come out dark in the picture?
Many questions, or incoherent rambelings, but it just didnt quite make scence to me. i posted here because noone had posted in the chapter one part for a while and i wasnt sure.
Please feel free to shed some
