CoffeeLast week's answer is Coffee. I took a detailed photo of it so I can analyze the textures and figure out why the hell people like it. I could never get into coffee because it's too thick and burn my tongue easily. It tasted like something Alien would brew. I prefer to drink Mountain Dew for breakfast :)

Pixels on LCD Monitor

Pixels on LCD Monitor(note: enlarged image is 1600x1500 and 1.2 MB)

It's pretty interesting to see what LCD pixels look like when zoomed in and macro’d with digital camera.

Each pixel is consisted of three colors (RGB). I think this may be the reason why CMYK looked so crappy on LCD monitors (even with modified ColorSync setting). I usually do all of my CMYK works on secondary monitor (CRT).

I think LCD is better than CRT even though it’s not good at CMYK. It doesn't make my eyes strain, color overall look more vibrant, save electronic, etc. The only things that annoyed me the most is ghosting problem and screen burn-in. If you leave a white window untouched for a several minutes, it will "print" on the screen and take a while for it to return to correct color. This happens even with top-of-the-line LCDs.

If you plan to buy a LCD soon, make sure it is from quality brand name such as Apple, Sony, Viewsonic, etc with long warranty. Cheap LCD usually has the worst refresh rate (you’ll need to call GhostBusters for this) and high numbers of dead pixels.

They're just several experimental high-shutter photos that I took. During the experiments, I learned that high-shutter require lot of lights if you want the result to look clear and sharp.

Camera Used: Minolta DiMage 7i Digital Camera Shutter Speed: 1/2000
