My debut for +CNET's DIY show, The Fix! My segment shows you how to make a ring light out of your big monitor or TV, but there's also great stuff on a DIY dolly and an egg timer for a smooth 360 degree timelapse.

Instagram's hyper lapse is more visually satisfying/smoother with only a couple minor limitations that most likely will be addressed over time.

Story
Tagline
Photographer, writer, DJ, presenter and maker of things.
Introduction
I make some internet over at CNET Australia as my day job. By night and weekend, I'm a DJ and radio broadcaster on my show on FBi 94.5FM - fbiradio.com and the Editor-in-chief of Cyclic Defrost magazine.

Unashamedly in love with puppies, music, floral pants, and taking far too many photos.

I shoot on whatever brand new toy I have to hand at work, and a collection of 14 film cameras when I'm not.
