Figured it was about time I made another update.
I'm still not finished uploading the cosplay photos from the event a month ago (!), mainly as I have been extremely busy and secondly as I was ill and had to stay away from work for a few days last week. But there are just some 4-5 photos left so it should be done really soon.
However one issue had been in the back of my head the past two weeks.
When checking my messages here on DA while in my breaks at work I was irritated how the uncalibrated screens here were making all my photos look really dark.
A comment from
also made me aware that something might be off on my end. I thought his photos were very overexposed, but it didn't make sense that noone made a comment about that.
As I was thinking of that issue while at home, I started thinking about an phenomena I noticed on my home PC every day. I noted that when shutting down the computer, the closing screen of windows 7 would sort of fade the brightness to adjust for the background image that has a white and blue combination.
Could actually my screen be the problem?
So I ordered myself a new screen, had that plugged in...and well... seems my screen has been lying to me for the past 5 years...
It is mainly an issue when I am working on photos with a black/dark background. Other and more brighter photos are also affected, but on a much lower level.
So well... looks like I might have a major adjustment job ahead of me before I can send the photos to the models.
A big thanks to
for the comment that made me aware of the issue. Give his gallery a looker, cause it is impressive
