My workspace is NOT orderly. :) I moved the piles and piles of papers out of the way, so I could put the keyboard up on the main table, instead of the keyboard pull out tray, because I wanted to get this shot.

I started out with Mo. Unfortunately, with needing a long exposure to show the screen, i couldn't get the cat to show up in a long exposure. (Mo sit still? hahahahahahahhahha!!)

I had a couple of shots that I really liked before I remembered to switch to jpeg. And there were some that could have been fixed so easy in photoshop.And one that was cool, but wouldn't be understood.

But I noticed that I had Jeff in the background of some of the Mo shots. After giving up on Mo, I tried for this kind of shot. There wasn't enough light from the screens to adequately light the faces, so I added lights to the scene. That's why the light on me is wrong: It's coming too much from the side, but I couldn't put a light in front without it being seen, or without it spreading too wide (I don't have a snoot for the news lights yet).

Thanks for the comments!

This made me giggle, thanks. Your workspace is very orderly. I like the composition and use of darkness for your shot.
