  3. 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
