Understand your HISTOGRAM

Featured Wednesday, 23 October 2013 00:18

The Histogram is an incredibly useful tool - you should learn it back to front to ensure you are getting the exposure and final image that you are seeking to create.

    Thank you for your tips and tricks and everything else you teach us.
    I was watching your histogram segment and got confused when you were talking about the left side and right side and the white and black sides. Were you talking about your left as you faced the camera or the left side of the histogram?

    If I must choose one, shoot slightly underexposed in order to retain the most data possible. Fantastic tip that I hadn't heard elsewhere - thanks!
