I want to take photography of things laid on a table (fabric, drawing and painting mainly). So, basically, the lens just above it.
Are there "special stands" for this kind of photo?
So far, I saw 2 methods, both using tripod:
- one with an tilting column:
- one with a simple tripod, but a little bit tilted and secured with a string or something like that.
It seems like it would be simpler to have that kind of thing than a tripod.
EDIT: apparently this "technic" is called "overhead camera".
