How-To: Make a Budget-Friendly Camera Mount

If you’ve been following past Blog Cabins, then you know we love sharing time-lapse photography to capture the remodeling of our dear homes. Have you ever wondered how we get that step-by-step photography? Project manager Dylan Eastman shared a handy (and inexpensive!) project for creating a 360-degree camera mount on DIYNetwork’s Made + Remade blog. Plus, we have a video showcasing the device in action. Check it out!

  4. The time-lapse photography would be the perfect idea for capturing my first to last dining room experiences onboard a cruise ship. I could relive all of those fantastic meals over and over again without adding any more over-the-top calories.

    Of course, I'd have to say that time-lapse photography is most suited to the Blog Cabin adventure, and I always appreciate being able to check out the latest photo additions as the DIY renovation progresses.

    Thanks to project manager Dylan Eastman, the DIY crew and Kayla for making it all happen.

  10. The 360 degree viewings used in the past, in Blog Cabin 2013 made it seem as though we were walking in each room of the home, on the pier and through the yard, as if we were there. Thank you Dylan for making the 360 available for us to view the wonderful Blog Cabins!. I cannot wait to use this feature in the new Blog Cabin Lakeside 2014.
