    I think it is, for what it is. So to speak.

    Nothing spectacular or expensive in play. Apart from the "so obvious that it's hard to see": the room itself. I've got a small studio room separate from my apartment, which makes it easier.

    So true. Also, I like the neutral paint on the walls. I'm about to paint soon, though I am going with a less neutral colour, I am going with a grayish beige. While it may not be as technically correct, I like the way that a near grey beige can look warm or cool depending on the light coming in the windows. Reminds me of Monet observing colors at different times of day. I find that a subtly fleshy tone doesn't bother me, as long as it does not lean into magenta, orange, or green too much. Though if I were to really set up a studio office, I'd go grey. I am considering turning the house/shed in the back yard into a little studio, but that would take more renovating. For now my study will double as the "colouring suite", and right now the walls are too warm to grade anything in, haha

    BTW, the mini monitor is 4K now? I'll definitely consider that when I get an LG 4K OLED.

    Exactly! Up to 2160p30 and HDR support via HDMI.

    $195 retail and I got mine for around $90! Good times =)

    While not technically a grading screen, the LG OLED C-series are used in a lot of the largest post houses in LA as client monitors (not in the suite itself). And for what I do, my reasoning is that if it looks good/correct on my 55 C8, it's good enough for me.

    Nice set-up, Andree. How is it you always seem to be editing beach footage? #jealous

    I was going to say that I'm just reusing images already on my server for convenient linking.... but you're right: last one was Miami Beach and this is Punta Cana.

    I'll do something from the Alps next.... change of scenery...

    That's nice. I may save up for that next. I currently have a HD Ultrastudio mini display, so I am running 1080p till at least next year. I really like 4K imaging. I don't need it, but certainly do like it.
