Thought I would post the screen pics here as well. I urge everyone to read the whole thread too.
A few pics of my finished theater...

Good stuff!

OK, all, I took a few pics. I didn't use "night mode," (didn't see your post ALM until I already took the pics), but followed Don's suggestions (with no flash).

I'll start a thread over at the "finished room photos" forum, in a couple of minutes...

ALMFamily I used night mode on mine - it worked pretty well.

OK, lemme get some good ones taken, and I'll post them.

Can anyone give me any advice about the best way to photograph images on the screen? I'm not much of a photographer, but my wife does have a nice DSLR camera so it should be possible to do...any advice as to what settings/mode to use, in a totally dark room but with a picture displayed on the screen, which would give me a nice shot?

Thanks,

Steve
Try to fill the camera frame with the image either by camera placement or using the zoom lens, just have the thinnest black line around the image to show it's the whole image. Use still frames so the image isn't blurred. Use a tripod to support the camera, and it also helps to use the self-timer (2 second mode if you have one) so you trip the camera shutter and have your hands off the camera when the photo is taken (which can blur the image too). It's usually best to leave all camera settings on Auto. Any other setting are usually camera-specific to fix things like photo color-over-saturation or photo graininess. With a good DSLR I doubt those will be a problem.
