This webinar clarifies, demystifies, and will certainly improve your photography!
The histogram can be a confusing tool to many--and thus it's often disregarded. It is actually a tool that is critically important--especially in-the-field--for evaluating the quality of your exposures!
Unfortunately, there are conflicting rules around using and interpreting a histogram that have led to gross "blanket recommendations" about whether to get “the mountain in the middle,” or “expose to the right,” etc.
But there are times when those recommendations are not appropriate at all! The confusion leads to misunderstandings that can truly hinder your photographic genius!
The histogram is like a “secret decoder ring” that can give you glimpses of your photograph that are far better than using the LCD screen alone. It helps you understand so much about the color, detail, brightness, darkness, and the look you are trying to achieve when used properly.
This session is a must-do for anyone who wants to master this confusing little tool.
It's aimed at those who would like to truly understand the importance of using the histogram in your camera to improve your work—and we will show you exactly how to do so.
Participants will learn to:
• Learn what and where a histogram can be found in your camera or in post-processing tools like Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw, etc.
• Read and interpret a histogram for tonal values and saturation
• Identify when your images are saturated vs over-saturated, in-camera
• Identify when your images have lost detail in your highlights, shadows
• Spot when you have “clipped” your colors and tonal values
• Learn to use your “blinkies” (aka Highlight Alert) settings to assist in exposure
• Learn to adjust exposure to get the results you want by reading the histogram
• Learn why your LCD readings are inadequate when determining if you have achieved "proper" exposure
• Introduction to understanding the histogram in post-processing tools like Photoshop
Join this webinar for FUN, interactive and upbeat learning that truly help you understand this awesome tool and improve your photography!
