  5. Histograms - What is a Histogram ? Histograms display the

    tonal distribution of an image in a graph based form - What is a tonal distribution ? The amount of different levels of light/dark areas present in an image - Why is a histogram important in Photography ? The true output of an image is not easily visible in the conditions a photographer may be clicking as the camera LCD itself is susceptible to changes in the light around it. A histogram lets you know the exact tonal distribution in form of a graph so that the photographer can understand the type of output he will get, and also warns you about over and underexposures
