Hi again , after watching the video tutorial on histograms im a little confused as to why you say all the data is to the right .
Ive take photos that to be fair look reasonably ok ( i do ware glasses ) . but the histogram points more to the left and middle and not the right . can you tell me where im going wrong because the image looks to be ok . ive included the photograph in question also the screen shoot of the histogram .. please help
Thanks
Paul

That image is has a good histogram. As a general rule of thumb you don't want a blank spot on the right side of the histogram.

Appreciate the reply Greg many thanks , based on your advice just with this image im feeling more confident that ive got this part right , might not be right with things like ISO and and aperture but with the help of all your tutorials im sure i will improve a little.
Ive got to day ive searched google for help in various aspects of photography and have not come across any side that gives so much FREE help. There are lots of places that offer help but they want you to pay for it . So many thanks Mr Cazillo for giving your time to help other ,,
Respect and Regards
Paul ,,

I have a question about the historgram too - it's my most frustrating point. If it's too far to the left - what do you look at changing first? Fstop? ISO? Or both? Or something else?
Thanks!

I set my aperture first, then shutter, then ISO. If the ISO is already pretty high I will consider lowering my shutter. If I still need more light and I am wide open then its time to add more light to the scene with flash or other light sources.
