My monitors are starting to scare me.......

It;s not unusual for me to put my current shoot's images on my monitors - looks cool and gives me inspiration as I work on the others from the session.

This time though.... I think she wants out.

I'm down to 3 now, but I used to have 5 back in the Quake/Unreal days.  Being able to see folks sneaking up on you without by turning your head instead of the mouse was great fun. wink

Well, it started with going SLI for gaming years ago. Ya'know if you have 4 video ports - why not?

The large unlit 'monitor' is a 32" Samsung LED TV.

Creepy yet cool but quite excessive... You're just showing off.
Let me guess you also drive a monster Ford 350 to the corner store for a pack of gum and soda tongue

I'm down to just my 24", if I need extra real estate for editing I open my MBP and the dual presets kicks in.

She's far too attractive to be scary. http://assets.modelmayhem.com/images/smilies/scary.pngwould be an image from 'The Ring' with a creepy little wet girl climbing out. Or a portrait of Rosie O'Donnell .

Is it me or is this just an opportunity to show off a setup?

Not showing off to show off. The images are creeping me out a bit - more when the room is dark. I thought it was cool and shared - if you're offended in some way - oh well.

I drive a Lincoln MKS and pull a trailer with it:

Another showing off comment.... I just wanted to show the effect not the 'setup'.

She is a beautiful young lady the:

You're missing a monitor in the upper left. Buy one more.

I wish some photographers publish a book with a lot of short stories like that.

Back in my time books had illustrations smile I miss that.
