Paul, it goes on to show that in a photograph, what are recorded are brightness levels (technically, "luminance"). The directional light missed the wall altogether, which was only less than a metre behind her, and the film considered it as darker than everything else at that particular film speed, shutter speed and aperture combination.
When I was teaching photographic printing, a lot of novices could not get it: "the wall is white so it should look white" and such. Of course it goes on to show that a photograph shows only a greated "censored" form of reality
I still use that particular B200 and Pentacon lens, although the lens got quite battered since then but still keeps on trucking. Since all three of you gentleman have the same lens, I'd imagine you'd be taking it out for a spin soon!
