Sample text

If you are making a portrait, you may want only the person to be sharply focused, but not a distracting background. In a landscape, on the other hand, often you may want everything sharp from close-up flower to distant mountain. Once you understand how to control depth of field, you will feel much more confident when you want to make sure something is—or isn’t—sharp. Here the greatest possible depth of field was used to keep everything sharp from the fighter’s needle nose to the background. To control how deep or shallow depth of field is, you have three factors to work with.

In fact, it’s the range between these two points that defines the dynamic range (also called the tonal range or contrast) of the image. If the image is low contrast, you can also tell if it’s low-key or high-key from the histogram. A low key image has details concentrated at the dark end of the scale. A high-key image has them concentrated at the light end. In Photoshop, the Levels dialog box gives you five triangles you can drag to adjust the distribution of brightness in your image. The three triangles below the histogram work as follows: ■ Dragging the left (black) triangle to the right darkens the shadows.

Since most image corrections can be diagnosed by looking at a histogram, it helps to look at it while still in a position to reshoot the image. It’s for this reason that histograms can be displayed on the Digital Rebel’s monitor. ■ When shooting, change the Review setting to On (Info) (page 113). TIP When a histogram is displayed, areas in the small image next to it blink if they are overexposed to pure white without detail. This is called the highlight alert. HOW TO READ A HISTOGRAM The horizontal axis represents the range of brightness from 0 (shadows) on the left to 255 (highlights) on the right.
