FINALLY Calibrating My Monitor!

Finally! Finally! Finally I've calibrated my monitor!!!

So if you're anything like me, you tried the in-monitor calibration that apple offers. Now, there's a big difference and shows a change to the naked eye. The only problem is... It uses your naked eye. 

*How can you correct a color problem when you don't know what the colors are supposed to be?!* That was my issue and so long I've waited to calibrate my monitor with an actual colorimeter. Well here it is! The X-Rite Colormunki!

I honestly, can't believe I went so long without it, especially being a professional photographer. The setup is SUPER easy and you see the change immediately after the process is done. The change is usually huge when you first calibrate your monitor. As a matter of fact, I calibrated mine 5 times in a row because the 'Proper Color' just looked off to me. Obviously, that's only because my eyes were so used to being tricked in what proper color was.

As a fashion photographer, colors and textures are EVERYTHING! This device not only calibrates the monitor but keeps it calibrated with ambient light readings that continuously calibrate your monitor every 5 mins! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!

It's been a long time coming and even longer over due in properly calibrating my monitor! as the old adage goes.. "Better late than never"!
