  1. The histogram is a graph which represents the distribution of light or luminance values in your image. Its horizontal axis ranges from black and dark shadows on the left to bright or pure white on the right. Although there is no 'perfect' distribution for a histogram, a well-exposed image will have luminance values that fall within the histogram's range for your camera, with no pixel's luminance values falling on the extreme left (shadows recorded as black) or on the extreme right (highlights recorded as white), unless you are trying to achieve a particular creative result. Fortunately, all modern digital cameras can display an histogram, which you should check early and often to help ensure that you achieve a good exposure. To view the histogram, preview your image on the LCD screen of your camera, and flick through the options until a graph appears (some cameras only show luminance, while others also show the Red, Green, and Blue channel values). If it shows values on either extreme, you may want to adjust your aperture, shutter speed, or ISO, and then retake the image to regain that lost information.

    If the brightness values in the scene fall outside of you Histogram's range (i.e., outside of its dynamic range) even after making appropriate exposure adjustments, then you may want to properly expose for the shadows and highlights in separate images, and then combine or blend those exposures in an image-editing software program like Adobe Photoshop or Photomatix; this technique is also called HDR, or High Dynamic Range photography.

  2. I discuss ISO and other related topics (aperture, shutter speed, histogram, and so on) in my recently completed an introductory photography book: "A Concise Introduction to Photography."

    ISO is a measure of the sensitivity of your film or digital sensor. In this episode I discuss the basics of ISO and how it relates to exposure and noise.

  4. Here we jump in the studio while we have a Tascam HS-P82 8 track recorder on loan (thanks Tascam!). What a great opportunity to test out 8 unique mics at the same time! We've been curious as to how some of the expensive and not so expensive mics would do with a real world, common problem: a loud, noisy device that we can't control. Critically listen to how the mics faired....
    Note all these mics are available from dvestore.com

  5. My husband Josh explains how he made my custom shoulder mount (and saved me lots of money!).

    Sorry for the crummy quality of the vid/audio - this was shot on my little point-and-shoot. I am accepting donations to improve the quality of future posts! :)
