Default photographing a computer screen?

Now, I know I could do a screen capture, but I was wondering if anyone had
any ideas on how best to photograph a computer screen.

Saw a very nice pic on a newspaper today. Shallow depth of field - far
greater "feel" than could be generated with software from the contents of a
screen capture.

Any ideas?

Hugh

Long exposure. At least twice the refresh rate.

I should have elaborated. I'm using a Nikon d70 to photograph the flat, LCD
screen of a Mac PowerBook G4.

Yes, do a screen capture. You get 100% resolution, 0% distortion, perfect
color representation, what more could you want? :-)

You won't need much depth of field if it's flat then !

Do you have an LCD monitor? I just picked up my camera and took a
picture with my little Nikon 3200. It's fine; no bands or anything but
with a CRT, I'd use an exposure several times the refresh rate.
