I think to test what you're all saying (that the glass is too thick for a tight image) I'll cut off a short strip of 35mm and tape it to the screen. Then I'll hang my head and admit defeat.... or not!
Isn't there an Adam and the Ants album with a picture from a TV on the cover. I love that look.
Thanks again for all the input!
NO DEFEAT! You learn! And you express!
Technical photographs must mimic physical reality. Art may do so if that's what you are after. But they don't have to do so.
I think it is an extremely interesting idea, and I don't even own a TV.
