metered light

If I hadn't metered the light, then the camera would have thought that the book's pages were a darker object reflecting light from a much brighter source. By measuring the light, I knew to set the camera to manual and "overexpose" (according to the camera's reflection meter) by almost a full stop.

 

See the Technique topic on metering for more information.
