Calibration. Don’t forget it

A quick reminder for you guys to regularly calibrate your monitor.

I’m using a BenQ monitor which also supports hardware calibration. Which for our work (photography and video) is a huge plus.

Standard settings that will almost always work for you are
D65, 120-130cdm, profile 2 (not 4), gamma 2.2
Just keep those and you’ll be pretty ok.

Now remember to calibrate at least every 3-4 weeks. But preferably before every important retouch session. Do make sure you let the monitor warm up for at least half an hour.

Calibration is fast and simple. Don’t skip it. It really makes a huge difference. And can get you out of a lot of trouble 😉
