If your monitor is set up differently than mine, my photographs may look strange on your computer. If you think this could be the case, try adjusting your monitor by following these four steps:
Step 1: Resolution
To view the photographs without scrolling, set your screen resolution to the highest possible. This is usually done by adjusting the monitor display settings in your operating system. If possible, set your browser to view this website using full screen mode.
Step 2: Viewing Angle
Adjust your monitor until you're looking at it squarely. Looking up at your monitor can darken a photo, and looking down at your monitor can brighten it. Looking at your monitor from the side can give the photo a yellow or blue colour cast.
Step 3: Colour
To view the photographs without colour casts, set your monitor's colour setting to the "normal" preset. This is usually done using buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors don't have colour settings – if yours doesn't, it's probably set this way by default.
Step 4: Brightness
To view the full tonal depth of the photographs, adjust your monitor's brightness and contrast settings until you see 24 distinct rectangles in the image below. The first and last rectangles should merge with the bar on the top and the bar on the bottom. Some monitors won't allow you to see all 24 rectangles, and some monitors don't let you change these settings. If in doubt, choose the brighter, higher contrast setting.
You should now be able to accurately view the photographs on MarkRaymondMason.com. Keep in mind that no web photo can match the detail, colour depth, or tonal range of a fine art photographic print. Many mobile devices do not allow monitor adjustments.
