How about a monopod that you can hold low down?

Yes good idea Boyd, or one of them low angle tripods, the ones that go almost flat, are we going in the right direction Jane

I would say a mono pod with and cable release, you may have to bodge it a bit however i think you could get it to work.

I hope this helps.

have you contacted The disabled photographers Society They may well know of some suitable devices or be able to help. I have met the chair a few times and she is a lovely person and may be able to suggest equipment and ideas as to how you can do what you want.

There are some very good photographers in that group.

And they mention a manfrotto magic arm

I've put a camera onto a tripod, used the time delay and taken a picture with the camera upside down before now. Worth a try.Smile

I should have said they mention a manfrotto magic arm with a remote release for your camera.
