The Limits of our Histogram and how to Ditch the Rules!
The histogram is one of the most important tools that our cameras and editing software possess.
It gives us an easy to read, visual representation of the distribution of light through our images. It allows us to control our exposures with a great deal of finesse. Fine tuning the way the light behaves on our image and giving us great creative control.
We are often told that we should stay within the limits of our histogram and for the most part, this is good advice.
It means that we are not pushing beyond the boundaries of our sensor’s capabilities. This, in turn, means we will get maximum quality from our image.
