I position the camera where it can capture the the portion of the fly I want to highlight. In this case the camera would be lower than the vise head a little. and point up at the fly.

If you vise jaws rotate you can always rotate to an optimal position for photos.

If you have a scanner you can put the fly on the scanner andjust scan it. Doesn't work as well for dry flies but works great for streamers.
