Claims

What is claimed is:

1. A stand comprising:
a plurality of legs;
at least one substantially vertical extension extending upward from said stand;
a joining structure disposed at one end of the at least one vertical extension;
a substantially horizontal extension having a length, said substantially horizontal extension being attached on a first end to said substantially vertical extension by said joining structure, said horizontal extension extending at an angle of substantially ninety degrees from said substantially vertical extension; and
a camera mount disposal at a second end of said substantially horizontal extension distal to said joining structure and said at least one vertical extension.

2. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein the joining structure is configured to permit lateral movement of said horizontal extension.

3. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein said plurality of legs is a tripod comprising three substantially similar legs.

4. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein said substantially vertical extension extends upward and is adjustable in a range.

5. The apparatus of claim 4, wherein said range of adjustment is 0 to 24 inches.

6. The apparatus of claim 1, wherein said joining structure permits rotation of said horizontal extension from a first position to a second position.

7. An apparatus for obtaining upward and downward photographic images comprising:
a first attaching means between a stand and a substantially vertical extension, said first attaching means configured for movement of said vertical extension relative to said stand;
a second attaching means between said substantially vertical extension and a substantially horizontal extension, said second attaching means configured for at least one of lateral movement of said horizontal extension relative to said vertical extension and rotary movement of said horizontal extension; and
a third attaching means disposal between said substantially horizontal extension and a camera mount disposal on said substantially horizontal extension.

8. The apparatus of claim 7, wherein said third attaching means is disposed at an end of the horizontal extension and permits rotation of the camera mount about an axis substantially parallel to the horizontal member.

9. The apparatus of claim 7, wherein said substantially vertical extension further comprises an adjusting means adjustable in a range.

10. The apparatus of claim 9, wherein said adjusting means comprises a range of adjustment of O to 24 inches.

11. The apparatus of claim 8, wherein said camera further comprises an actuating means.

12. The apparatus of claim 7, wherein said second attaching means includes an automated mechanism for moving the horizontal member relative to the vertical member.

13. The apparatus of claim 7, wherein said substantially horizontal extension is a telescoping member that is of variable length.

14. The apparatus of claim 7, further including a counter- weight disposed on said substantially horizontal extension at an end distal to the camera mount.
