The appearance of digital cameras was a true revolution in the world of photography; and beyond the image capabilities that it has given to us, there is one thing that we pretty much take for granted these days.
It is a thing that would sound like science fiction to earlier film photographers. This thing we are talking about is the Histogram.
The histogram is that graph you look when toggling between display view settings on your camera, or when opening a RAW file in Lightroom.
Knowing how to read a Histogram can empower you to trust your images, no matter how they look on your camera's LCD screen.
True story, I work a lot on the streets and other outdoorsy places while doing some essays or research. And the sun can be so bright that it has tried to fool me into thinking that my images were underexposed, fortunately, I learned about the importance of histogram in my early days as a photographer.
