A critical tool in your development as a photographer is an understanding of, and the use of, the Histogram.
Chuck Haacker says…
“My background was all in analog (film). We had no histograms. We mostly eyeballed our pictures. I will freely confess that the first time I saw a histogram, I had no idea what it was or its value. For the longest time, I pretty much ignored them.
When I finally got some information on histograms, the blinders fell from my eyes. I not only realized the value of histograms in digital photography, but I also realized that they are simple to interpret once you understand them. They are an excellent tool at the point of exposure, and even more so in post-processing. They are equally useful whether you shoot JPEG or camera raw.”
The Histogram is a versatile and valuable tool for getting the very best out of nearly any picture.
