It could also well be the least understood. In this article we will look at what a camera histogram tells the photographer and how best to utilize that information.

This tutorial was first published in October, 2009. The most common complaints I hear from most photographers of any experience level is "my images aren't sharp", and "I can't get my focus to lock".
