The topic of discussion of the histogram is extensive and time-consuming. But, if you approach the issue creatively, by slightly “closing your eyes” to technical details, you can explain in a few words what a histogram is, why you need to be able to read and understand the histogram, because this is a very useful tool that many modern cameras offer their users, to help get quick information about the tonal range that is present in any image.
The histogram shows the distribution of image tones from black (left) to white (right). The higher the peaks in the graph, the more the shade to which they correspond. For example, histograms with a large number of dark pixels will be skewed to the left, those with more light tones will be tilted to the right.

The next time you take a picture with the camera before you press the shutter button, consciously ask yourself which lines are in front of you and how you can use them to add something to the future picture while working with THEM, and not against them. Continue reading

In photography, resolution reflects the level of detail in an image, which is determined by factors such as focusing accuracy, lens quality, and the number of pixels of the camera’s sensor. If the image is intended for printing, other factors come into play – image size, print quality, etc. However, at the same time, resolution may also relate to more specific aspects, such as the resolution of the lens, the number of pixels per inch in the print version, and the total number of pixels of the digital image.
