Part III: Section B
Building a Photographic Frame
5. Steps 7-8

Step 7: Building the Camera Support

The camera should be positioned at the center of the top crossbar. The following figures illustrate how this step is accomplished.

Use two screws to affix the camera support plate to the midpoint of the top crossbar.

Step 8: Attaching the Camera to the Support Plate

Make another hole at the upper-middle part of the support plate. Use an eye bolt with a wing nut for tightening to attach the camera to the support plate.


To avoid any interference with photography (e.g., shadows), it is preferable to attach the camera to a mechanical or electronic cable release.
