Understanding Histograms and How They Can Help You Make Better Images
A lot of people are confused or intimidated by histograms — but they can be very helpful tools to create stronger images. This workshop will introduce luminosity histograms (that you read in your camera) and color histograms (that you use in your editing software) so you can begin to use their power to help you become a better photographer and editor.
Néstor Pérez-Molière was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and currently resides in The Bronx. His practice takes place mainly in the realm of photography, but also incorporates performance, drawing, video, installation, and intaglio techniques. All of these are used in unison as he turns his camera on himself and delves into self-portraiture, exploring his relationship with his body, body image ideals, and food relationships as subject matter.
