In Black and White Photographs  You can easily see light gray and white.  And areas of medium gray and black. Dorothea Lange Migrant Mother

White is the Lightest Value Louise Nevelson Dawn’s Wedding Chapel IV

Black is the Darkest Value Louise Nevelson Sky Cathedral

 Start with white and black at the ends and then establish a mid-range gray. Gradually expand the chart out till you have 10 values

 With hatching and cross-hatching transition the rest of the 1 inch squares from very light gray to a dark grey. Citation Needed
