This week's photo myth that Chris wants to bust is that the display can show a good image for you. Often, when you import pictures into your computer, they look totally different. That's because the photos have been "chimped" on the LCD so the image is inaccurate. It may look sharp, but it's out of focus. The colors may be washed out when you actually see it full size. Screens on cameras aren't calibrated, so they're natively off. It's good to review pictures for composition, and you can use the histogram feature, but if you're shooting raw on your camera, you're actually looking at a jpeg image on the LCD.

Don't forget our current assignment - Heat! Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "heat" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "heat" as well! If Chris likes it, it could end up on our next photo segment!
