3 Some sample histograms are shown below:
• If the image contains objects with a 
wide range of brightnesses, the 
distribution of tones will be 
relatively even.
• If the image is dark, tone 
distribution will be shifted to the 
left.
• If the image is bright, tone 
distribution will be shifted to the 
right.
Increasing exposure compensation shifts the distribution of tones to the 
right, while decreasing exposure compensation shifts the distribution to 
the left. Histograms can provide a rough idea of overall exposure when 
bright ambient lighting makes it difficult to see photographs in the 
monitor.
