Still Much To Learn About Histograms

I like to call them little mountains to my students and I know enough to correctly use a histogram to color correct a photo using Levels in Photoshop. But, I’m still learning how to use a histogram when I shoot.

I am going to try “exposing to the right” a technique that I’ve heard about from several sources like Advancing The Story and Luminous Landscape. Both have some valuable information about improving your exposures by exposing the histogram to the right side of the graph.

Happy Shooting.
