    Shooting archival material
    #1
    Default
    Frequently, when viewing documentaries the filmmakers will shoot closeups of images in books, or pictures etc. The camera will zoom in, out, or pan, tilt, or whatver. How is this done? Is the camera being held by some sort of device held overhead and focusing down on the material that is laid out on a table? How is the material kept perfectly flat if the image is being shot from a book? Or is the material help against a wall and being shot with the camera being on a tripod? Hopefully, you understand what I'm getting at here.

    Thanks for any input.

    The images are generally scanned. Then animated in the NLE.
