Well, Well, Well....

What do me have here The perfect forum for me...I was having a problem with my K20D 50 mm lenses and google the error code and it brought me here...and LOW AND BEHOLD...I was able to get them to work...YAY...and thanks by the way...

Anywho...I am like that neighborhood mechanic that fixes everybodys cars but never went to school...

Im that "photog" that is HELLA creative but has no "technical" sense...

My questions will sound something like this...
What is a Histogram, and is it REAALLLy that important...LOL(I know that it is...right?)

Thanks, for having me!

Histogram is the display that shows the exposure settings for the image and can show each indivitual colour (RGB). You want the hump to be in the middle of the graph or leaning toward the right side for the best exposure. But that can vary from scene to scene to some degree as well.

Have a look at tip number 9 here Learning to Shoot – 13 Lucky Photo Tips Enticing the Light info.

Welcome to the forums and enjoy your stay! I hope you post lots of shots and comments.
