Monitor Calibration

I’ve bought quite a few prints from RedBubble since I joined about 10 months ago. Whilst I’ve always been very happy with the quality of the prints, they always looked a little darker than on screen.

The other day, a friend of mine found a web site that goes through a procedure to calibrate your monitor, without the need for any external hardware – so I gave it a try.

After lots of going back and forth adjusting brightness, contrast and gamma, my monitor now shows images very close to what gets printed.

The site is: http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/, it’s worth taking a look.

As a result of this, I have adjusted some of my pictures (mostly sunsets) to increase their brightness.

If you do give it a try, I’d be interested to know what you think.

Technical Information

As you have probably noticed I generally put some technical information with my pictures. For some time I have been meaning to put in tags to allow viewing of all images taken with a given camera or lens. I was prompted to get around to doing this by a journal entry by Anne Staub. So, it is now done. The technical data on each image contains links to other images taken with the same camera or lens.…

I would be nice to see more technical information added to pictures. It is a good way to learn, by seeing how a camera was set-up and the results that gives.

Below is a complete list of my lens and camera tags:

Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6
Sigma 24-70mm f/3.5-5.6
Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8
Nikon 60mm F/2.8 Macro
Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5
Nikon 28-80mm f/3.3-5.6
Nikon 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5
Nikon 70-210mm f/4

Map Links

I’ve started to add a link to Google Maps to some of my pictures, so you can find the location where the photo was taken. I thought it might be quite interesting to know the location. Anyway, here is one with a map / satellite image link. Let me know what you think.
