Photography lighting is a tricky business. This project aims to create an easy add-on that can work with any camera, film or digital, to illuminate subjects and scenes with custom colors.
To add an extra fun element to this ring light, we can select the color by turning a color wheel, the color that is above the light sensor on the CircuitPlayground will be the color displayed!
This project is a fun introduction to soldering and coding, and is easy to adapt for different lighting purposes.
In addition to the electronics, for this project you will also need:
- Scrap cardboard
- Paper and color printer
- Double-sided foam tape
- Scissors or hobby knife
