Finally got a grey card and set the WB.....now I find that.....

......instead of going +2/3 I am set at even and the pictures are still overexposed.

Is this normal with a grey card? I even had to shut of 15,000 lumens of light....but it made no difference.....

Also, for the heck of it....I put on a CPL after the above setup and it made everything a lot darker inside for product photography and did not bring out a better color....I had to try it.

So, AWB is achieving close to what the Grey card is.....what am I not doing right?

Thank you

Elliot
