YOUR FRIEND – HISTOGRAM

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.

It consists in capturing the very natural golden light of the sun, at sunrise or sunset, when a magical, mystical and in some way even unearthly effect is created. It would seem that difficult in such a shoot? In the end, you just need to make time for a photo to take when the sun rises or sets, right? However, this is not all. There are many factors to consider when doing this.

First of all, inappropriate weather can interfere with your shooting.
