My Entire Life Has Been a Lie
Well, not exactly - that's the writer in me exaggerating, but I do feel very betrayed by modern technology right now.
You see, John brought home his spankin' new work laptop the other night. It's a fancy, shiny thing: a MacBook. I don't have any experience with Apple products outside of the iPhone, so I was curious. Oh, blessed are the ignorant! I tested it, typing this blog's address in Chrome (I like to judge a laptop by the way its keyboard sounds, there's something about the way the keys click that is very satisfactory) and as the page loaded, I was stunned to realize that things look...different. Now, I was aware that Apple monitors are indeed different, but I didn't know exactly how much! My entire portfolio appeared to be over-processed, darker, too contrast-y. It was all off balance, as if I was editing on drugs or something.
Needless to say, I am very upset right now. Apologies to the world population that has seen my work on a Mac screen. I swear, I am very good at what I do! I just need to learn more about calibration, tone standards, and to rethink my entire photo-editing process.
Anyway, here are a few phone shots from the past few days. The last one is unedited, and I have a lemur on my head because I was annoyed by how slowly my hair is growing back.
Happy September, peeps!
