Q19: How can I take photos of fractals?  
A19: Noel Giffin gets good results with the following setup:  
Use 100 asa Kodak gold for prints or 64 asa for slides.  
Use a long lens (100mm) to flatten out the field of view and minimize  
screen curvature.  
Use f4 stop. Shutter speed must be longer than frame rate to get a complete  
image; 1/4 seconds works well.  
Use a tripod and cable release or timer to get a stable picture. The room  
should be completely blackened, with no light, to prevent glare and to  
prevent the monitor from showing up in the picture.  
  
You can also obtain high quality images by sending your targa or gif images  
to a commercial graphics imaging shop. They can provide much higher  
resolution images. Prices are about $10 for a 35mm slide or negative and  
about $50 for a high quality 4x5 negative.
