The Pros and (Mostly) Cons of Upgrading to a 4K Monitor

I'm in the process of getting back into photography which will mean a new camera, more on that in a later post. But the first step for me was a new computer, one with the horsepower to handle a modern day camera and its RAW files. Along with the computer comes a new 4K monitor. 4K is great for media consumption, right? Your characters on your favorite show or movie really look detailed and realistic. Scenery looks wonderful. Everything looks great, right? Wrong. You know what doesn't look great? That photo I took in 2012 that I thought was sharp but is very much not. I transferred over my past catalogs of photos over to Lightroom Classic and eagerly began opening up some of my favorite photos.

Fast forward to today and I see that the information I had for this week was outdated. Back in 2011 week 21 had a theme of flower. And having checked my Evernotes I dutifully shot a flower. Then as I was searching the #2012Project 52 tag on G+ I realized there were a bunch of white photos, with a flower or two mixed in. A quick look at the group page and sure enough there had been a change in theme. Week 21 was now "Mostly white". Some quick thinking, and a push up on the EV dial brought me the second shot. So, it a 2 shot Monday.
