So it's April, I'm at RG's Chicago workshop waiting to shoot Kat Crowe, and this guy by the name of RonMark leans over during our conversation and says, "yeah, the histogram looks okay." I didn't have the heart to tell him that he just went right over my head.
With a little more research, there is some good information out on the fundamental use of histograms. Now, the big dogs in this group (Eldor, JimmyD, JT, etc,) know this stuff like the back of their hand. But if you are a relative newbie, or have just never looked at it seriously, here is the most basic discusion that I've seen that explains it well.
If the Big Dogs care to throw in their two cents or have another good resource I continue to all ears. No, really. I look like freakin' Dumbo over here.
And Ron, thanks for trying brother. You gave me the push I needed.
