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 43 and 44

Week 43: Candy/Sweets
Trick or Treat
Week 43 for +Weekly Photo Project 2013 was Candy or Sweets, because not everyone celebrates Halloween, yet we still wanted to somehow tie in Halloween. I had the good stuff to handout.

Week 44: Reflection
I kind of shot myself in foot with this. A couple weeks back I used a reflection shot for our Mirror theme so this week I didn't want to copy the style or type of shot from the other week for Reflections. With time running out I cleaned off the tablet screen dusted off a Porsche 917 model of my Dad's and here we are.
