Most of us wants to make overhead videos or take overhead photographs. If you don't understand what overhead means, then i am telling you. Just imagine that you are writing on a paper. And you want your camera to capture only the paper, not you. Then you will need a overhead camera stand. And i am teaching here, how to make a stand for overhead recording or photography.

Step 1: What You Will Need:

** 2 pieces of single wood planks, see images for example. Height is at least 15 inch. Wight is 1.5 - 2.5 inch.

* 1 piece of flat wood, see images for example. Any height or width is acceptable. But size of a book is recommended.

* Some nails and a hammer. That's it!!.

Step 2: How to Make It?

Review the images and make it carefully.

Step 3: Images Captured With Help of That Stand

Step 4: Result

So here is the completed stand. I used the book to give the stand some support. You may also need it, when your camera is heavier than the stand can support.

Check out the video that I made using this overhead camera stand. And please give that a like.

Thank you for reading. Please share this and follow me for more tricks.

এতো সামান্য প্রচেষ্টা দিয়ে বাংলার মুখ কিভাবে উজ্জ্বল করলাম? ভালো লাগলে একটা ভোট দেন। উপরে ডান কোনায় ভোটের জায়গা আছে।
