  • Choosing the right monitor

    • I found a great article with great descriptions of the most current monitors in 2015 - CLICK HERE

 

  • Monitor Calibration

    • I  use the Spyder 3 Pro by datacolor.  I see there is a Spyder 4 Elite out now but it's significantly less in price than the Spyder 3 Pro, which raises a brow.  I'll need to research this further.  To check out the Spyder 3 Pro on Amazon, CLICK HERE
    • Keep in mind that your calibrator is quite useless unless you have a monitor that is up to par.  This is the best way to get proper color correction and to ensure your prints match what you are viewing on screen!

 

  • The Wacom

    • I use the Wacom 4.  It's been reliable for years, even with a crack in my glass.  It's one of my most important pieces of gear.  I don't even know how photographers live without them.  I highly recommend buying it and using it!  To see the Wacom 5 Large on Amazon, CLICK HERE
    • NIBS - my friend recently told me about the extra NIBS that come with your Wacom.  This is important information... for years, I didn't even know I had them sitting under my stylus.  Good thing too because mine rescently wore out.  I like the rubber tipped NIB the best.  Check out this YouTube video for more info:  CLICK HERE
