Exposure Practice using a Grey Card

For this task i was having to practice my understanding and demonstrate how to take exposure readings using your camera on manual. i had to find a predominantly dark/black tone and predominantly white/light tone. Then i had to set the exposure according the the cameras recommendation. I exposed the frame close up and then stood further away. I then had to see whether they came out either dark/black or mid-grey or white/light or mid grey. I found that my images did come out mid-grey in both sets of images. However I found this task slightly difficult due to not seeing much of a difference between the close up image and the further away image. Therefore when i get my new camera this week i am going to go re-practice this technique and make sure the difference between the close up and further away image are significant.
