Pure White Interior Photography

A while back I was assigned to photograph a pure white interior for an issue of Our Home Magazine – Kitchener/Waterloo/Cambridge . Photographing anything white can be a challenge,  the light meter in a DSLR camera is not content aware.  It can’t tell if the subject matter is black or white,  light or dark. It is calibrated to average out the overall exposure of a scene to a middle grey (18%).  90% of the time this is works fine however, when there aren’t any dark or light values in a scene to balance out the average the meter will not give an accurate reading.  Its important to make sure you adjust your exposure accordingly to compensate for this. In a white scene I have to “cheat” the meter a couple stops over to get the proper exposure. The histogram will appear to be very heavy on the whites but that is accurate to the scene. I am happy with how well the shoot went. What do you think?
