determining distance

determining distance

day 4 of building a ttv contraption for my mom. Before I cut or drill into the aluminum back brace, I need to determine the best distance from Canon lens to viewfiner top. I've shimmed under the Starflex to raise it by 1/8", and I've placed a piece of wood under the Canon lens temporarily, as it wanted to fall forward because it wasn't secured yet.

I put the Canon on the edge of the table, so I can view, and move the Starflex the correct distance. While viewing, I hold the flower over to Starflex to take a test shot.

The funny thing is my mom likely thought she would have her Canon back in a couple days--I hope she's not waiting by the mailbox for it's return.
