Hi everyone. I am not a photographer at all, so trying to put a set up together is a challenging prospect. Here's what I need it to do, and I believe I will require a lens, ring-light and a tripod, (we have a camera already) so any advice that you can give me would be much appreciated: I am going to be looking at black 1-5 micron beads and taking pictures of them as they move slowly. Colour is not a concern. Size isn't much of a concern either as it will all be relative. So how do i make a system that will hold the camera 90 degrees above the beads so I can see in fine detail the area that they cover (which is what i want to measure). I need the tripod to hold the weight of the camera and lens at 90 degrees all the time. If you can help at all I would be very grateful. Thanks! Briony.
