I have noticed that there have been several references here to using the histogram when taking photos with a DSLR and that this facility can be used to get better exposure results in difficult conditions such as dark hangars or poor weather.
I have started reviewing each photo taken when using my Pentax *istD but I am not sure what I am looking for in terms of a 'good' histogram and I am not really sure what the histogram is telling me. I managed to take some scenery photos in North Devon over the last few days which came out really well when viewed on my PC but when I go back to the histograms of the best ones I still cannot really see any pattern or consistency that would tell me at the time that they were good photos.
Can anyone here explain what I am looking for or point me to somewhere which would help shed light on this?
