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.

Week 35: Decay
For my black and white project we had the theme of Decay. I thought for sure I had this planned at the beginning of the week and so procrastinated taking the actual shot. Turns out I really couldn't make the shot work and so I went looking. Found this very weathered anchor  and took shots from different angles and compositions, which drew some looks from others, but finally found a shot I was happy with.
