Here are several situations that benefit greatly by the use of a gray card to check the exposure.
- Whenever there is any sort of back lighting such as a bright sky or window behind the subject.
- When there is a light source such as bulb or light fixture in front of your camera.
- When there is any type of back light such as a bright sky or window behind the subject.
- When a large part of the scene has a fairly dark tone like a close up of a big black car.
- When a large part of the scene has a fairly light tone like a snow scene.
These are lighting situations that fool the typical camera light meter. It never hurts to check the light reading with a gray card. If you get the same reading with the card as without, you didn’t need it. If the gray card gives a different reading, you should generally use the gray card recommendation. Or, you could make several exposures to see which negative comes out best.
