White is Black, Black is White, Night is Day

People sometimes say that two things are like "night and day" to mean that they are at opposite poles, as far apart as possible. Black and white are supposed to be where they're supposed to be. But actually, the choice is all yours....

Re: White is Black, Black is White, Night is Day

The last two sentences in this article make sense, but the majority of the rest are nearly useless.
The following statements: "Your camera will likely never do this on auto-exposure. Indeed, it sees everything as neutral gray." is nonsense.
If the sensor sees everything as neutral gray, every image would be a solid block of neutral gray.
There is also the implication that in pictures with snow, with your camera set on auto exposure, the snow will come out looking gray. Unless all you have in the picture is snow, this is almost, completely, entirely untrue. And who takes pictures of just a flat field of snow?
This is a lazily written article that uses bad information that has been rehashed over and over on the internet.

Sensors are keyed to set white balance to neutral gray. Its way a grey card is used to set white balance. This has nothing to do with exposure. Over exposing snow will make it white, but at the expense of perhaps blowing pixels and loosing details within the snow.

Again this is based on White Balance and not exposure.
