Splash photos are incredibly fascinating and common in advertising. However, whilst they are easy to find, taking your own splash photo can be very tricky! Now with this project from Thomas Burg and Johannes Gottwald you can spend a weekend making your own Arduino powered, high speed, splash photography rig to drastically simplify the process.
The rig uses an Arduino to precisely time the dropping of the object as well as the firing of the flash so that you can get the perfect shot every time. For anyone interested in photography, this project could save you hours of time and is sure to yield satisfying results. To get started taking fantastic splash photos with Arduino check out the following link.
Rather than breadboarding your circuitry as suggested in the project guide, why not check out our own ProtoShield for Arduino. The ProtoShield is an excellent tool to turn your temporary, breadboarded project into something more permanent. The shield fits directly onto an Arduino board and has a large general purpose area in the middle where you can solder on your own parts to create a durable, long lasting project! The ProtoShield is a high quality, corrosion resistant gold plated PCB and represents great value at only $3! For more information or to order visit the ProtoShield product page.
