Mastering Photographic Histograms: The key to fine-tuning exposure and better photo editing

Histograms are the key to proper exposure and creating stunning images in the post-processing stage of DIGITAL photography.

Photographic Histograms are unique to Digital Photography.

Most books on the subject of Photographic Histograms only discuss the Luminosity Histogram that is projected on the LCD screens of Digital cameras. There are three other types of Histograms that you should know about — RGB, Colors, and Color Channel.

Most books also only describe the basics of how to use the Luminosity Histogram to set exposure. In this relatively short but fact filled book you will learn how histograms are created and their significance to photography.

Though they did not exist in the days of film photography, they are closely related to the Exposure Zones System created by Ansel Adams and Fred Archer around 1939.

Can you identify with any of these experiences?

  • Do your eyes glaze over when people talk about histograms?
  • Do you feel that histograms are too technical for you?
  • Are you enthused about photography but confused by all the technical jargon?
  • Do you wonder how professional photographers get such great images?
  • Are you tired of well-intentioned friends giving you bad advice about photography?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, end the frustration. Just scroll up and grab a copy today.

Documentary filmmaking is a powerful and vital element to our society,  and those who are responsible for bringing real stories and issues to a creative medium often have an uncanny ability to make a deep connection to us with their art.

In The Art of the Documentary, the directors, editors, cinematographers, and producers behind today’s most thought-provoking nonfiction films reveal the thought processes, methods, and collaborations that have guided their efforts- from project conception to developing, producing, shooting, editing, and releasing some of the finest documentary films of recent decades.

The Conversations: Walter Murch and the Art of Editing Film

The Conversations is a treasure, essential for any lover or student of film, and a rare, intimate glimpse into the worlds of two accomplished artists who share a great passion for film and storytelling, and whose knowledge and love of the crafts of writing and film shine through.

It was on the set of the movie adaptation of his Booker Prize-winning novel, The English Patient, that Michael Ondaatje met the master film and sound editor Walter Murch, and the two began a remarkable personal conversation about the making of films and books in our time that continued over two years. From those conversations stemmed this enlightened, affectionate book — a mine of wonderful, surprising observations and information about editing, writing and literature, music and sound, the I-Ching, dreams, art and history.

The Conversations is filled with stories about how some of the most important movies of the last thirty years were made and about the people who brought them to the screen. It traces the artistic growth of Murch, as well as his friends and contemporaries — including directors such as Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Fred Zinneman and Anthony Minghella — from the creation of the independent, anti-Hollywood Zoetrope by a handful of brilliant, bearded young men to the recent triumph of Apocalypse Now Redux.

Among the films Murch has worked on are American Graffiti, The Conversation, the remake of A Touch of Evil, Julia, Apocalypse Now, The Godfather (all three), The Talented Mr. Ripley, and The English Patient.

“Walter Murch is a true oddity in Hollywood. A genuine intellectual and renaissance man who appears wise and private at the centre of various temporary storms to do with film making and his whole generation of filmmakers. He knows, probably, where a lot of the bodies are buried.”
