Understanding the Histogram

Understanding the Histogram

Histogram can be your best friend in Digital Photography.

Do you use and refer to the Histogram in your digital camera or editing software such as Photoshop or Lightroom? Understanding the role of the Histogram in digital photography is very important and can help you make a perfect exposure.

Generally speaking, the Histogram shows you the tonality of light captured in an image. In this article, I am going to talk about the Luminosity Histogram, not the RGB Histogram. By understanding the information in the Histogram, you can easily modify the exposure to make a perfect shot.

Histogram

As you can see in the image above, the left side of the Histogram is pure Black, and the right side is pure White. The vertical axis shows the number of pixels. By studying the Histogram in this example, I know that most of the pixels are used for highlight areas with a few in Dark Grey and Black, resulting in overexposure like the image below.

Histogram in Over exposed photo

Or it can be a High Key image like this one.

By understanding the Histogram you can take better High key photos

There is no such thing as a perfect Histogram. You should compare the Histogram with the scene and find out if your main subject is within the histogram range. For instance, try to understand how this Histogram would look like a photographic scene.

Next, look at the image and compare it with the Histogram

Although majority of pixels are in dark grey tones, the Histogram tells you it is a correct exposure for this scene

Although the majority of pixels are in dark grey tones, the Histogram tells you it is a correct exposure for this scene

Now, look at this Histogram.

In this image, the majority of pixels are in dark grey tones

Although it looks pretty similar to the previous Histogram, you understand that it is under-exposed when you compare it with the scene.

This Histogram shows you that the majority of pixels are in black and dark grey

This Histogram shows you that the majority of pixels are in black and dark grey.

Understanding Histogram is not tricky. It just takes practice to become familiar with the information it provides.

In our upcoming Photography BootcampI will cover this topic in-depth with more tips that you can put into action to learn one of the most powerful tools in digital photography. Understanding Histogram is like finding a best friend inside your digital camera – one which gives you instant and accurate feedback every single time!

Our next Bootcamp starts on February 3, 2022. It is a six-week program and has two field trips.

One Day Photography Class

Two Part Photography Class For Beginners 

Spring is coming soon with exciting opportunities to photograph unique images of nature. One Day Photography Class specially developed for taking better pictures outdoor in different light conditions. Taking photos outdoors, especially in Fall and Autumn, needs specific know-how techniques. Our One Day Photography Class is scheduled for March 24th and all camera makes and models are welcome.

What is One Day Photography Class about?

One Day Photography Class is a two part workshop; the first part is a 2 hour classroom session where you will learn how to control the settings on your camera, how to meter or read the light, how to compose your photos, etc. With outdoor photography you need to understand and change the camera settings on the fly as the light can change so quickly, or your subject may move, so you need to be able to compensate for these changes as quickly as possible. The main part of One Day Photography Class is dedicated to finding and changing these settings in your digital camera quickly without wasting any time. Here is an example of how fast the ambient light can change the look of your picture.

Outdoor Photography Fall program

Outdoor Photography Techniques are part of the Fall Photography Bootcamp

We are getting close to Autumn and with the wonderful changes in the weather and landscapes, you may want to consider doing some outdoor photography.

How to be successful in outdoor photography?

Landscape and outdoor photography techniques are very simple. A good working knowledge of metering modes and selective focusing can have a big impact on your photos. Additionally, the rules of good composition often work very well but there will also be times when you want to break the rules!

A six-week Photography Class for Beginners starts on September 27th 2017

Beginners Photography Boot Camp includes six classroom sessions on Wednesday nights as well as two field trips one for daytime and Outdoor Photography, and one for nighttime photography.

Taking photos outdoors, especially in autumn, needs specific know-how techniques. One of the most important techniques is EXPOSURE. Shutter Speed, Aperture and ISO can control Exposure. For taking outdoor photography you also need to know how to select the right exposure metering, such as Spot vs. Centre vs. Matrix/Evaluative. Photography Bootcamp covers all and shows you how to use your digital camera to it’s potential.

Each session comes with full instruction and you get assignments to do.

As part of our Digital Camera Bootcamp, we have two field trips.The field trips allow you the opportunity to play around with different camera settings. You have time to take photos with shutter speeds, Aperture, ISO, etc., and discuss the setting with your instructor. Towards the end of the program your instructor will ask everyone to switch to Manual mode in their cameras and start to control shutter speed and aperture manually. The feedback from our students was they enjoyed the Manual setting over Aperture or Shutter Priority!
