On our photowalks, I find myself explaining how to read a histogram at least once on each walk.  Knowing how to read the histogram will provide you with information you need to make adjustments to obtain the  correct exposure, while your subject is present.

I came across this video today on reading histograms and found it clear and concise.

Now take a look at your histograms from your photo library and practice.
Happy Shooting.
