Perfect Histogram 1

What is a Perfect Histogram?

Do you refer to the Histogram in your digital camera or editing softwares such as Photoshop or Lightroom to examine the exposure?

Understanding the role of the Histogram in digital photography is a must as it can help you in creating the perfect exposure. Due to its significance, I dedicate a good part of our Digital Camera Boot Camp Workshop to teach Histogram and if a perfect Histogram exists!

What is Histogram?

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.

Basic image, basic Histogram!

Here is a very basic shape of a black and white block. So the perfect histogram shows two spikes, one for black and one for White.

In this basic image, notice that there are only two spikes, one for black and one for white.

Now lets add a grey tone block to the image and explore the Histogram

Tritone Histogram

By adding a 50% grey tone, you can see the new spike in mid tone.

These are very basic images with basic histograms. Now let’s make it a little complicated by adding a gradient black to the white tone:

And here is the Histogram for a Radial black to white gradient

Notice how Histogram demonstrates the tonality range of the image

What about colour images?

The application is the same. In Luminosity, your camera or editing software sees the colours as different shades of grey. Here is a sample of different colours:

Basic colour Histogram

Histogram shows the luminosity of the image

As you can see in this image, the Histogram shows how pixels were used in the image. It helps me to get information regarding the brightness of the image.

For this simple reason, to me all the histograms are “Perfect Histogram” provided how you interpret the data.

That is all for now. Stay tuned for next article about Histogram, in which I will discuss how to interpret the Histogram data according to the image, and you will find the real Perfect Histogram.

Photography and Photoshop Private lessons

Photography and Photoshop private lessons in Fraser Valley, BC

We introduced private photography and Photoshop classes in April 2013; these private classes have become very popular with new inquires for private lessons coming everyday.

Photography, in general, is a vast industry consisting of equipment knowledge, technical skills and artistic aspects. These are applied in many different specialty areas such as wedding, portrait, architectural, landscape, etc. The specialized nature of private lessons is one of the many benefits.

Photography Private Classes

What are these benefits?

One of our instructors will evaluate your needs and customize the course materials according to what you need to know. So you invest your time to learn the most relevant skills to achieve your goals faster. Much of what is offered in photography education is in broad terms and often for generic use. Private lessons ensure you are learning only what you specifically need, not revisiting what you already know. You will learn technical aspects about your own camera brand, flash, editing software and subject area.

 

When you evaluate my skills and develop some private lessons for me, do I have to take them all?

This is our recommendation but it is all about you and how you want to invest your time.

 

Do you provide private lessons outside your office?

Some of our private lessons need to be outdoors. So we offer indoor and outdoor class time. If you want an instructor come to your home, a traveling charge will be added to your tuition fee. We prefer to have indoor classes in our office as we have access to any equipment that may be needed.

 

I want to learn Lightroom or Photoshop Elements and I only have a desktop. Do I need to buy a laptop to learn image editing?

This is another benefit of private classes! If you want to join our public Lightroom or Photoshop classes, you will need to have a laptop. But with the private Lightroom and Photoshop classes the instructor can come to you and you learn on your own desktop.

 

I plan to buy a new camera/flash/lens/accessories. Can you help with the right decision?

We offer this service free to our previous students (private or public class attendees).

If it is your first time with us there is a $25 consultation fee and one of our expert instructors will guide you through pros and cons of your purchase.

 

What if – after an equipment consultation – I decide to register for a class?

You can use the equipment consultation fee towards any of our classes (private or public) for up to three months. More good savings for your photography budget!

 

Feel free to contact us if you have questions. Our office hours are Monday to Friday 9:30am to 3:30pm, Saturday and Sunday by appointment only.
