001.365 Brand New Start

Here it is, picture 001 for my 2013 attempt at another 365.


For 2013 I've resolved to learn. I'd like to learn more about photography, and have also challenged myself to learn about electronics. Robots and such.


Pictured here is a partially assembled TriggerTrap. TriggerTrap is basically a do it yourself camera trigger powered by an Arduino. It can trigger your camera based on sound / light etc.


They sell them pre-assembled and have an app too, but this is the DIY version. And DIY I did. Right up to making my first mistake D'OH! One pin on a 16 pin chip wasn't inserted correctly, decided to cut it out and now waiting on a replacement. Looking forward to trying this out on all sorts of projects in 2013.


Shooting macro of the board has given me another benefit - I've seen where I've made little boo boos with my soldering.
