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. Changed to my glasses and the photos were even blurrier! I went through photo after photo and most ca

Is This Thing On?

*Tap tap tap* Is this thing on? Is this thing even working? Do I even know how to do this anymore? Do I even want to do this? All good questions, with some (hopefully) being answer with this post. Meaning if you can see it, it's on and working. The other questions? Well, who knows at this point. But, if you're seeing this, congrats! You probably had the RSS feed (which may or may not still be working), or some other little service I was using over a year ago is still shooting this out to social media. What brought me back? Am I back? 

What brought me back is easy. A couple days ago +Blogger released a, well, blog, detailing some new themes: I didn't hate them, and in fact liked one (the one hopefully you see here) and I went poking around, and re-kicking the tires to see if anything else about Blogger had changed. On first glance, nothing else has changed, which is both good and bad. 

Am I back? Tentatively, yes? Maybe? I'm not sure. I certainly have photos enough to share, having not really shared any in, oh, a year or so, but I'm not sure if I have the desire to post regularly again. If I can setup a quick and easy workflow on both the Android and computer side, it might just happen. Also, since the yearly renewal of the domain name is up in 4 months, I hope to figure out

So, about this photo. Taken at Cape Blanco, Oregon during a Northern northern California and Southern Oregon day trip. I have a handful of other photos from this trip waiting to be processed and or shared. That's the other thing, I, in a way, re-discovered Lightroom, and the trove of photos I've just been throwing in there and not going back to. I feel there are some good shots, and they should be shared, so maybe I the blog stays active long enough to share them and goes dormant again. Either way, thanks for stopping by!
