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

The Histogram in Overexposed 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.

Controlling The Depth Of Field

Add Creativity To Photos By Controlling The Depth Of Field 

Exposure is the main key in Photography and Aperture is one of the main controls in photography. As you know we can set our exposure by using Shutter speed, ISO, and Aperture. But controlling exposure is not the only important performance of the aperture. Another significant role is controlling the Depth Of Field.

In this article I discuss how by controlling the Depth Of Field, you can add more story to your photographs.

Depth Of Field

Christmas Photography tip
Shallow Depth Of Field reduces the focusing area to your main subject.

Depth Of Field

Christmas Photography Tip
Increase the focusing area by using a higher f Stop. The whole scene is in focusing range.

By controlling the Depth Of Field you can eliminate unwanted elements from the scene, as you can see in above images.

What is the Depth Of Field

I found the best description for depth of field in Wikipedia:

“In optics, particularly as it relates to film and photography, depth of field (DOF) is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image. Although a lens can precisely focus at only one distance at a time, the decrease in sharpness is gradual on each side of the focused distance, so that within the DOF, the unsharpness is imperceptible under normal viewing conditions.

In some cases, it may be desirable to have the entire image sharp, and a large DOF is appropriate. In other cases, a small DOF may be more effective, emphasizing the subject while de-emphasizing the foreground and background.”

Does it sound too Complicated?

Although it may seem complicated, in real life application it is not. As a rule of thumb the higher f-stops (higher the number) give greater Depth Of Field, with more of the scene appearing to be in focus in your photo. And vise versa, a lower f-stop results in a smaller (shallow) Depth Of Field, with only one sharp and focused point in the image.

There are several other rules which apply to depth of field, such as lens focal length and the size of your media (sensor or film), which I will discuss in a different article.

In following images I set the camera on a tripod, and shot the photos in three different Aperture. You can see the how opening up the aperture changed the focusing range.

Aperture f16

the focusing point was on the front of the car, using f16 brought more items in focus.
the focusing point was on the front of the car, using f16 brought more items in focus.

Aperture f5.6

By opening up the aperture to f5.6, the whole car is in focus and the other elements are out of focus.
By opening up the aperture to f5.6, the whole car is in focus and the other elements are out of focus.

Aperture f1.8

At f1.8 only the front of the car is in focus and the rest of the scene, even the back of the car are out of focus.
At f1.8 only the front of the car is in focus and the rest of the scene, even the back of the car are out of focus.

Let’s take a closer look at these images by zooming closer. Click on thumbnail to see larger size image.

Now you have it! The higher f-Stop the more distances in focus and the lower f-Stop the fewer distance. In next articles I will cover some important tips on how controlling the Depth Of Field can enhance the pictures.

That is all for now. We love to hear from you. Let us know if you have any questions, feel free to send  us your questions and we will be more than happy to answer them. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for more Free Tutorials and Tips.

Beginners Photography Class

Beginners Photography Class Bootcamp Program

Why do you need to take a Photography Class?

Photography is capturing the moments, wether you shoot sports or portraits, you want to capture those precious moments. Understanding digital cameras is the most important part of a successful photography. Digital Photography Class Bootcamp Program is one of our most popular photography classes and tickets sell very fast. It is a 6 week program with 6 classroom sessions and two field trips, one for day time and one for night time photography techniques. Our Fall Photography Class was very successful and everyone enjoyed the program. Here are a few reviews and pictures from our Fall Bootcamp.

  • I have had my DSLR Camera for over 2 years and had no idea how to use it. As a colour expert, decorator and design blogger, it’s so important for me to have pretty images on my blog. I had tried many times to take photos that included a window but my automatic functions (auto settings in camera) would not allow it. That one day when I learned how to turn an image from dark and bleak to a light filled space was worth the entire price of the course. Your patience and sense of humour with a bunch of novices in the class was great! Thanks again for a great boot camp! I look forward to learning more from you! Thank you so much!

    Maria Killam, Colour Expert and Design Blogger, mariakillam.com

    –Maria Killam

  • I’m really happy that I took this course. Thanks to Ted, my photography has improved tremendously. I’m not very mindful of all the rules of composition when taking photos, I feel confident with the knowledge of my camera’s functions, I am constantly the potential for a good photo everywhere I go.

    –Nicole Skutelnik

  • Ted was so welcoming from the moment I come through his door. He did well to make everyone feel comfortable, no matter what level of previous photography experience we each had. He is well educated and readily answered all our questions! Also has a great sense of humour which in turn made his classes more relaxed. So thankful for everything we learned! Thanks Ted!–Damaris Vane

Dust on the Sensor

Dust On The Sensor, A Common Issue in Digital Cameras

Regardless how careful you take care of your digital camera, at one point you look at your photos and you will notice few dark spots on the image (specially on the sky or plain area of the photo). Don’t get so excited that you have captured UFOs pictures! No, you haven’t! In fact those dark spots are Dust on the Sensor! It sounds very scary having dust on the sensor of a digital camera, but it is a common issue in almost all digital cameras. In this series of articles I am going to discuss how to reduce the chance of getting dust on the sensor, how to clean the sensor, and how to use Lightroom or Photoshop to remove the dust from photos.

Dust on the sensor

Dust on the sensor
Dust on the sensor is a common problem with many digital cameras.

How Dust gets on the Sensor

These dust particles are very tiny and they are floating around us all the time. When you change a lens, or even zoom in and out with your lens, the dust gets in to your camera and sits on the sensor.

The digital camera sensor has strong static charge, and this static charge works like a magnetic field that attracts the dust particles. When the dust particles sit on the sensor, they get stuck there till you do something to get rid of them.

Which cameras are more prone to get dust on the sensor

Generally speaking all digital cameras, but DSLR and Mirrorless cameras are more prone to getting affected by dust. When changing a lens or zooming in and out with the zoom lenses, the air gets sucked into your camera and brings dust particles along with!

There are many simple steps that you can take to avoid getting dust on the sensor. Stay tuned for upcoming articles as I am going to discuss how to reduce the chance of getting dust on the sensor, how to clean the sensor, and how to use Lightroom or Photoshop to remove the dust from photos, and as always feel free to contact us if you have more questions.

Picture Enhancement

In-Camera Picture Enhancement

Almost all digital cameras have some builtin incamera picture enhancement. It is advantageous to learn about this creative feature in digital photography, mainly if you shoot jpg and don’t want to do any post-processing.

I am going to call it “Picture Enhancement,” as it is the right name for this function. But camera manufacturers use different names for it! As an example, Nikon calls it “Picture Control,” Canon names it “Picture Style,” and Sony uses “Creative Style”!

You may ask why different manufacturers use different terms for the same functionality. And my honest answer is: “I don’t know! Maybe they use different algorithms. But one thing is for sure; they cause more confusion.

What does Picture Enhancement do?

Generally speaking, picture enhancement consists of several pre-settings, such as Neutral, Portrait, Landscape, Vivid, etc. These preset apply a certain amount of Enhancements, such as Sharpening, Saturation, Contrast, etc. to the image.

Each manufacturer uses different terms for these pre-settings.

Different name for same feature!

In-camera Photo Enhancement
Different manufacturers use different names for Picture Enhancement

What are the uses for Picture Enhancement?

Picture Enhancement is a function that provides image styles preset in the camera, to help you achieve your photographic and artistic visions. Depending on the model, and make of your camera, there are 6 to 13 styles, such as [Landscape] and [Sunset], are available and can be used in the P/A/S/M-modes.

With digital images, you can create different impressions of the same subject by controlling various parameters of the camera, such as tones and depth of colour, brightness, contrast, and sharpness.

Picture Enhancement allows you to easily finish up the image just the way you want, by maintaining the optimal balance among these various parameters.

Picture Enhancement: Neutral Vs Vivid

Using Vivid as picture enhancement in cloudy day creates pleasing effect.
Using Vivid as picture enhancement in cloudy day creates pleasing effect.

What are the most popular presets?

As I mentioned before, there is a variety of these presets. The most popular ones are:

Neutral:

The saturation and sharpness are lower for shooting images in subdued tones. Therefore, it is also suitable for capturing image material to be modified with a computer.

Vivid:

The saturation and contrast are heightened for shooting striking images of colourful scenes and subjects such as flowers, spring greenery, blue sky, or ocean views. I also suggest using this Vivid setting for photographing in overcast days, as it enhances the doll colours and make them more pleasing.

Portrait:

For shooting the skin colour in a soft tone, it is ideally suited for shooting portraits.

Landscape:

The saturation, contrast, and sharpness are heightened for shooting vivid and crisp scenery. Distant landscapes also stand out more.

How to use Picture Enhancement?

Just select the style suitable for the theme or scene you want to convey, and the flexibility of your photographic expression will be significantly expanded. Furthermore, this particular function even lets you incorporate your artistic intentions based on the selected style.

Can you customize Picture Enhancement settings?

In many digital cameras, you can customize these pre-settings or create your pre-settings. I strongly suggest to use the presets as a starting point and tweak them to your taste.

Do you want to take better pictures this Summer?

Omnilargess Photography workshops focus on many hidden features in digital cameras and editing software. These hidden features assist photographers in taking their photography skills to the next level.

I dedicate a good portion of our digital camera workshops and Editing classes to discuss these hidden features.

Digital Camera Crash Course is one of our most popular photography courses. This two-week program is in four sessions, and each session consists of theories and hands-on practices.

Our next Digital Camera Crash Course starts on September 26th, 2020. There are only a few spots left.

New Camera? Decisions, decisions

Should you buy a new camera or invest in learning photography skills?

We often spend money on new gear with the hopes of better image quality but aren’t always satisfied with the results.

New camera can not take better photos!

Why is that?

The simple answer to this common experience is: digital cameras are just electronic devices with no reasoning capabilities. As smart as technology has gotten, it’s a mistake to let it make the decisions for you! As with any tool, your best approach is to learn what your digital camera can do for you and how you can take control over it. Have you ever felt overwhelmed by all the buttons and settings? Our workshops have one primary goal: to help you learn new skills in easy to understand steps. We also believe that hands-on experience is absolutely necessary in this process.

Learn photography and unleash the power of your camera

Does a simpler digital camera help you take better pictures?

Not necessarily. There are so many controls in today’s cameras that even very basic digital cameras have lots of buttons and dials!

Even smart phones can make good photos when you learn photography

I took this photo using iPhone. Composition makes this image beautiful. Composition is part of the Digital Photography Bootcamp.

Does reading the camera’s manual help?

Reading camera manuals rarely, if ever, help us become better photographers. Can reading through our vehicle’s manual help anyone become a better driver? New skills are best achieved by a combination of knowledge (theory) and application (practice).

Camera manual dose not explain when and why using different settings, it just explains HOWS
