    LMAO! I didn't want to imply that I was on par with Adams! I'm not. That was a typo (or a freudian slip... i didn't think I was that egotistical)

    And it seems like the enlargers know I've...

    I totally agree! I haven't been shooting digital for long, and there are some challenges associated with the transition. I tend to spend more time looking at the histogram than looking at the screen....

    Marie- I think looking at the histogram as more of a reference than something to "use" would be more helpful. It's just a way to quickly look at what values there are.

    Paolo- Typically when you're...

    Well. That's essentially what camera profiling does, right? Making an HD-like curve for the sensor? But i don't really think that that level of precision is necessary either, at least in terms of...

    Kim- I don't know where your background is, but mine is in traditional ZONE SYSTEM black and white photography. So correlating zone placement with histogram placement is important.

    See, and this is how I used to think about it, but that stupid link you gave me threw everything off!

    The problem is that those steps of luminance don't correlate directly to the amount of...

    It turns out you're right, DS, but I think you are misinterpreting what is being said. Brightness is measured relative to other tonal areas in terms of EV or Stops whereas the camera measures light...

    Thanks Kim. You're absolutely correct. I think we're talking about the "same" histogram, but your analysis is much more universally applicable and accurate.

    DS- Why is it that there are more hilight tones than shadow tones? As far as I knew the palette is distributed evenly over a 2^(bitdepth) gradient. The camera doesn't know anything about what a...

    I don't think there is a good "looking" histogram. It's more of an analytical thing and not something you'd want to shape into something specific. The histogram can point to some short comings and...
