I spent hours designing and building a ceder multilevel projector stand with the
idea that I would do more projecting a few months back. I can now with this
stand project on my seamless white backdrop. So it's 'deja vu' all over again if
that's where I had shot the picture in the first place. A projector has to be
chest high to avoid Keystoning. That plot or ploy had not worked. Mainly because
my mind set is keyed into black and white fiber prints.
