And finally, THE CONTEST!
Think you can judge a picture solely by its histogram?
Judging an image based solely the information of its histogram is like trying to understand what someone looks like based solely upon their fingerprint. Understanding and controlling exposure is critical to achieving full tonality and proper color saturation. It requires more that just moving the histogram to the left or right. A light meter is the key to gaining the valuable information about a scene’s tonal values before it is captured and thus getting the picture you want.
Match up the images on the left with the histograms on the right. Correct answers will be entered into a drawing each month and a random entry be chosen to receive the prize package, worth $750.
