Default White on White

This challenge had me wondering how my camera would meter a white-on-white subject. I knew wouldn't be very accurate but it wasn't even in the ballpark at 1/40 sec and f/2.8 (flash on,ISO 100). At those settings, this prize-winning shot of an egg on a piece of paper was completely, utterly blown out. The successful settings were 1/80 sec and f/11(flash on, ISO 100)

And now the egg...
Fujifilm FinePix HS10, Fujifilm FinePix HS20 EXR, Pentax E-80 P&S, Sunpak auto383 flash, Optex slave flash, Velbon VGB3 heavy-metal tripod, TechPro TP-242 tripod with B62 ballhead, assorted filters and other bits.

Hi Toshi...

Great shot, I really appreciate the texture of the egg, and shadow.

I was thinking of doing the exact same thing (white egg on white surface/ paper).... great minds think alike?

But the eggs I currently have in my fridge are 'light brown shells'... so can't do that!

Well exposed photo. Thanks for sharing.
