Default Remember the workspace thread?

Hey everyone, a few years ago someone started a thread on showing your workstation for your photography. At the time there were lots of very complex spaces with desktop computers, monitors, Scanners, printers and different input devices. I am willing to bet that the laptop has changed much of that and that many workstations are now far more "compact". Mine has to be because it had to be taken with me here to Tuktoyaktuk.

It now consists of a Gateway widescreen laptop, an NEC Multisync monitor (which is also my XBox 360 screen) a Nexxtech external USB keyboard (with media controls and a USB hub), a Wacom Bamboo pen tablet, a dsl modem, a Linksys switch, and my phone and coffee (of course. ) and a 250Gb external drive which was not hooked up when I took the picture below.

I don't have a decent desk (furniture here is outrageously expensive so I borrowed this one which is too high). The XBox and NEC as well as my speakers are in an end table. The NEC has the older non-glare screen so it is much better for photography than the shiny screen on the laptop.

Yes I am a Trekker (or Trekkie if you prefer). Also the disk for Forza 3 is permanently in the XBox 360 since I am totally hooked on that driving game.

The laptop has an SD/MMC/xD car reader built in (convenient since my Pentax uses SD and my Fuji uses xD).

Here is what it looks like: BTW I pulled the Caps Lock key out of my external keyboard because I am sick of my fat fingers always hitting it when I go for the "a" key.

And here I thought I was the only one with the cap lock problem!

I don't dare post a photo of my work space, its way too messy and Hodge podged together with all kinds of junk that I'll probably never use, laying around. And if I posted a picture of it, it would ruin my image that I've worked so hard on, to portray myself as the master of neatness and control! Now, you wouldn't want that, would you?

LOL! Your workspace looks very neat and tidy, a useful place to work. Mine's not half so neat - too much stuff around that I might use at some point, my other half's computer, reference books (computer, programs, bird field guide). Some day I'll organize it. Maybe even try to find current drivers for my very old scanner and hook it up. Or maybe not.

I don't have enough stuff here to make a mess with

Hi Ira, it looks like no one is going to bite on posting a photo of their workspace. Like the others mine just can't stand up to the standard you set with your photo!

You're actually looking at half of the furniture in my living area! It isn't messy because I don't have enough stuff to mess it up with.

Oh well, I guess that may be the definition of neat.

OK, here's my space which also serves as the home office, and homework lab for my 2 high schoolers.

Dell Inspiron Desktop, Dell 24" monitor, HP 17" Laptop, Epson Scanner/Printer and finally an older Dell desktop with a 17" LG monitor. No excuses now from the kids that they cannot do their homework because Dad is hogging the PC for photo processing

Note the old phone books serving as a monitor stand as well as a stand for my printer.

Mine has improved substantially since the last thread. My oldest have moved to study elsewhere, so me and my wife now have an entire room for ourselves!
And thanks to a substantial tax return I could get myself a new computer, and a HQ screen (Eizo). The computer is only for photo editing, it's not even Internet connected. I also found a nice display cabinet for my camera stuff, standing in the corner.
The space is also my home office, in the other end of the room my wife has her sewing machine and her medieval stuff on sort of display.
When the next son moves out, we'll have one room each, and I can space the furniture more.
