    YodA - I like it!

    But wouldn't it be easier to buy a second hand tripod from ebay? You can point those vertically down, can't you? (although I've never tried with mine).

    You mean: 'In the way, legs tend to get', surely? .

    But even if you er...spread your legs wide enough? It would bring the camera lower, but might be a bit unweildy I guess. The solution you posted is much more elegant (and looks cooler too).
    The other thing I was thinking of was a joby 'gorilla' (picture below) which binds to most things, so you could just use the edge of a chair or something.

    that's really cool.. but 20 pounds... that's like... 45 $ .... I'm thinking that the PVC idea is a little cheaper route ...

    The other (practical) reasons I like the PVC stand is that it is repeatable (and I can use a standard correction to compensate for barrel distortion in the lens) at one of the fixed height stops, and I know it is shooting square to the page.

    (plus I had done some work around the house and had leftover supplies. Only needed to purchase end caps and a few T's.)

    Wip

    I was playing around with Turgenev's style of mapping and applied it to a digital version of the tomb... this is just what I have so far

    Nice Maps man, Two Hints with digital, Using a incadescent bulb and lighting it right will give you pic a old fashioned yellow look, which is cool, also if you can do it right, take a picture with flash in Pitch Black, it'll be hard to position but if done properly it pay's off well.
