Check the his­togram

Chris says… “Out­side of a mag­a­zine ar­ti­cle you never see that per­fect lit­tle his­togram that looks like a moun­tain range – high in the mid­dle, drop­ping off care­fully ei­ther side – and rightly so, na­ture isn’t per­fect, it’s wild and un­tamed, so why should our his­togram be?” He pointed out to Tantse that the his­togram is good for check­ing whether high­lights or shad­ows have clipped. Clip­ping is over- or un­der­ex­po­sure to the point of dis­tor­tion. Once clipped, high­lights or shad­ows are un­re­cov­er­able, even in Raw for­mat, so this is best avoided.
