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. At first I was happy with how the colors looked and how the scene was composed. Then I noticed it was a little soft. Well I had just gotten a new contacts prescription so that must be it.

Weekly Photo Projects, Week 10

Week 10: Reflection
Pewetoll Island
A little late with the blog posting because I was a little late with one of the photos for this week. For +Project 52 B&W I went and grabbed a quick shot of Pewetoll Island (also shown here).

Week 10: Depth of Field
Charlotte's Web?
I have a timetable for +Weekly Photo Project 2013. I like to shoot and upload by Sunday so I can publish my blog post on Monday. I got out to shoot more this week, but each time out I was too wrapped up in what I was shooting that I forgot about shooting for this. Also in the back of my mind was the thought that I could stage something or find something in the garden to shoot. And then Sunday afternoon hit. I found these webs on the side-yard fence and shot a couple frames of them then went looking for other stuff. Got them into Aperture and these were the clear winners (once I threw out a version of a shot I'd used before for something else). I really like how you can easily see the area in focus both on the fence and the webs.
