According to the documentation of DiscretePlot,
Filling -> Axis, FillingStyle -> {Red, Opacity[0.5]}
means that bars above the axis will be red, and bars below will be 50%
opaque. If you want them to be both red and 50% opaque regardless of
position above or below the axis, you should use
Directive[Red, Opacity[0.5]]
although using this Directive for both PlotStyle and FillingStyle results
in 75% opaque regions where the fill and markers are drawn on top of one
another. Ordinarily one would solve this by specifying PlotStyle -> None,
but for some reason DiscretePlot does not respond to this setting, and so
we must draw completely transparent plot markers to get the same effect:
Show[
DiscretePlot[
Sin[t], {t, 0, 2 \[Pi], \[Pi]/6},
ExtentSize -> \[Pi]/12,
PlotStyle -> Opacity[0],
Filling -> Axis,
FillingStyle -> Directive[Red, Opacity[0.5]]
],
Plot[Sin[t], {t, 0, 2 Pi}
]
