Sure.

I am just picturing a sort of scaffolding that sits high enough over the table for good focus - and then attach it using the Gorilla Pod.

Here is what I am starting with - I suspect there will be a few modifications - as well as lighting and background changes.

But - as it is - the screen captures basically what is within the frame - and it holds the camera well.

Well that definitely works, thinking about attaching a light or something?
or just using the available light from that patio door?

I think two table top lights would work well looking down on the subject/marker

See the Cross pieces in the middle - that was actually a mistake - but I think I will add to this set up and mount two diffused lights above the camera. The window seat with the overhead light on is not enough and it uneven....

I have a few clip lights for a light tent that I built out in the garage - but I need to figure out how to diffuse those without being a fire hazard or being too harsh.

A little trial and error should get it.

Could you not wrap the sides and back with white paper and use the lights to shoot from the side rather then the top (well you could add one to the top also)
but then you dont have to mount the lights to the rig it self.
The paper would also defuse the light coming thru, depends on how close you put the lights to the paper.

I think what I will do is use clip lights on the side of my table and have it with a diffuser attached. It should work with no issues - if that does not work - I may do the paper on the sides of the frame trick.

that's a bad tripod. i had one, it loses grip after a while.

why don't you just drill a hole in the pvc pipe for a tripod mount screw, then buy that screw at a hardware store? i forgot which size the screw was, but bought one for a mount before and it was just a standard screw size.

then just get 1 florescent lanterns and hang them one on each side of the mount.

I'm going to build one of these now. Solid little setup you've got there.
