I've been wanting to do time-lapses of my art work for a long time, but never had the capacity to record any art I was doing non-digitally. When I bought a webcam I thought I'd found the answer but I realized I never had the right angle.
Because we're engineers and solving problems is what we do, my friend Silas Hughes
and I designed and built a super simple mount for both my webcam and overhead light.
For this build I used 4' of 1/2" PVC, an L joint, a 4-way joint, a handfull of zip ties, and a borrowed PVC cutter.
This build took me ~ 20 minutes and only cost about $6. Super easy, right?
