January 26th Tips & Techniques: Picking a New Photo Monitor with Tom Goldberg

by Tom Goldberg


Tom had to buy a new monitor to go with his computer as the old one died. All the things that needed to be considered and the incredible range of products available made this a bit of a daunting challenge. The fact that the monitor was specifically being selected to best be able to edit photos weighed heavily on the direction to go.

This talk will consist of sharing the thought process and considering all the parameters when making a choice like this and invite discussion from other experts in the club. Topics will include:
• Size
• Build
• Resolution
• Connectivity
• Response Time / Refresh Rate
• Color Space

Author’s Note: On March 8th 2022 (a little more than a month after this presentation), Apple introduced the The Apple Studio Display, a 27-inch monitor with 5K resolution and P3 color. It also includes a 12MP camera with Center Stage support, six-speaker audio, three-microphone array, and several USB-C ports starting at $1,599. This should now be added as a consideration for monitor shoppers.

Join Evergreen Camera Club for Tom’s monitor journey on Wednesday, January 26th via Zoom for 6:30 pm social time and announcements at 7:00 pm in the Zoom meeting room.

MAY 2021 T&T: Mounting Photos for Library Display

by ecc

The Evergreen Camera Club has the exhibition wall in the Evergreen Library reserved for displaying our photographs in the month of JUNE. This is a large display space, and can easily hold 60-100 photos, depending on size and arrangement, so there is room for EVERYONE to show some of their work. The easiest way to display your photos is to mount then on foam board and use Velcro to stick them to the wall.

FREE MEMBER FOAM MOUNTING MEETING:
At this Tips and Techniques meeting we will be mounting prints on foam boards. ECC will provide the material and expertise so you can mount your photos for the exhibit. So, gather up your photos. Size can vary. Many photos need to be 8×10 or larger to show well. They can be much larger if you prefer. Depending on the subject and how much they grab attention via color or contrast, some could be smaller.

As the COVID Pandemic is not over, please wear a mask and stay socially distant at this event.

This will be an excellent opportunity for members to bring their prints and get help mounting the prints to a backing suitable for display at the library.

For the library display, photos can be in frames, or mounted on foam board, or whatever. They need not all be mounted the same. The main wall is fabric-covered wood, and nails can be driven into it to hang framed photos with hanging wire.

You may also bring photos which are already prepared for the exhibit and we will collect them.

If you have photos that need mounting for the exhibit, come to our mounting workshop planned for 6:30 pm on Wednesday May 26. Please RSVP. Email ECC@evergreencameraclub.com to let us know if you’re bringing photos to mount or to drop off for the library exhibit.
