2007 - Day 219 - Screenshots

As a software test engineer (sounds rather grand but basically I try and find "bugs" in software programmes and websites) computers are my working life. 9-5 okay 10-6 you will find me chasing the 1s and 0s around trying to make them go boom before you guys do.

 

And taking part in 365 means that I usually spend the last hour of every day in front of another computer screen processing my photos (hopefully not at cursing at other people like me for not spotting the issue that has just crashed my photo cataloguing software again... but that is another story).

 

These two parts of my life were going to cross over at some point and I was bored so here is my very exciting computer monitor.

 

Tip: if you want to take a photograph of a CRT screen you need a slow shutter speed (1/15 or slower, this was 1/10) to avoid the banding that the scanning causes showing up.

 

1. Screen shot (moody),

2. Screen shot (straight),

3. Screen shot (hi key),

4. Screen shot (white),
