Hi Gordon, I'd just like to add second votes for both Photoshop tutorials and some hints on how to read the histogram, I've never known what to do with it.

I've often read about using the sky to do the metering, i.e. pointing the camera at the sky to see the amount of light available and then using that to get the exposure you want on your subject. This in itself sounds quite easy, but maybe with a video example it would be perfectly clear how to use this technique to get different results (or rather, the result the photographer is after).

I would like to see night shots, especially with different filters to give off different effects.
