Table top - glass plate

Table top photography with inclined view of camera is an alternative to vertical view with cameras on a repro stand.  There are several reasons  to this type of arragment:  It is the way we "natural look"  and it  can handle very large specimens , which can be difficult for the vertical view of the camera. There is some tendency that larger specimens are photographed with  inlined view  and smaller with the digital microscope type of vertical view.
