    Excellent tutorial on histograms! Now, instead of relying on a dimly-lit
    LCD screen or a flashing indicator in my EVF… I can check out my
    histogram in the camera image information and know if I have a good
    ‘normal’ exposure. This will help in setting up my “middle” exposure for
    bracketed exposures, too!

    I went to Disney Paris, it was very bright, and most of my pictures were
    coming up dark in the lcd screen, so as I am very new to photography I up’d
    the exposure …… the result was ALOT of over exposed photo’s luckily for
    me Lightroom 5 is awesome for ‘saving’ over exposed pictures. But now
    after your video im going to start reading the historgram and hopefully get
    it right on location 🙂 I love your picture of Big Ben, if you ever
    do a workshop or a walk in London I’d love to join you on it!!

    Nice job – seems like my best friend explaining things to me at a nice
    friendly, informative pace. You are a natural teacher. Should I feel
    guilty for watching all of these free instructional videos of yours?

    For anyone curious, In Photoshop you open ‘Levels’ by going to Images
    >Adjustments >Levels or by pressing Crtl+L and play around with the
    histogram. I like your keyboard mike 🙂

    Ahh – it’s an Avid keyboard. The colours and symbols are keyboard shortcuts
    for use with Avid video editing software. – Mike
