A Year With My Camera.... Introduction to Exposure

This week's lesson in A Year With My Camera.... Introduction to Exposure. 

I learned that when in auto mode my camera will automatically adjust exposure to 18% grey. The left picture is a white sheet of paper, the right is black paper. My camera automatically adjusted the exposure to 18% grey, making them look identical. 

Next step: going off auto and taking control of the exposure myself!
