One day's posts per page

I'm trying to display a single day's posts per page, but am going nowhere fast with the codex.
Any suggestions on a query to make this happen?

    Hi Phil,
    I probably should have added that I'm working with a few other selectors (separating the display by category) as well.

    Say there's category 1 posts and category 2 posts each day, I want to display all from the same day on the same page, but I want to put photo posts (which have their own category) on top, text posts below them. The daily archives are actually the perfect set-up structure wise, but creating custom queries the way that you can for the homepage is a bit more difficult.

    Trying a little bit more, I came up with this

    $my_query = new WP_Query( $query_string . '&cat=1&day=' . date( 'd', current_time( 'timestamp' ) ));

    which actually did the trick. It shows posts only from category 1, and only for the current day.

    Now if I can figure out how to get this set up for the archives, and display the first day of the daily archives as the homepage I think I'll have this completely taken care of.

    Thanks for helping me not overthink it beyond that.

Thank NAME, for their help.
