Summary

Welcome to Lightpainting!

Lightpainting is fun with your camera on bulb mode in the night
The camera stands on a tripod, fixing to an object in the dark.
in the time the camera is open, you can use any light to move in the picture. Your body will not be visible because its dark and you are moving. So you can paint with light.

With this tool you can create a colorfull lightsource for lightning rooms or objects.

There are three buttons for setting a RGB-basecolor. A Startbutton switches the light on or off.
With the brightness button you can set the brightness of your lightning or effects or (long pressed) you can switch, that the startbutton must be hold while lightning or acts like a On/Off button.
All settings are presented in a simple menü throught the leds.

With the anmiation button you can choose several anjmations: Simple-Color, rainbow cycling (Solid or dynamic), fadeout your choosen color or stroboscop flashes.

The pistol is very bright and the angle of lighting ist wide. Therefore i have added a snooze for this pistol, which ist optional. It allows better control for setting color points in your scene.

On ebay you can purchase neopixel-like rings, 4 sizes in one circuit board (normaly, you broke them in several rings but here let them together and solder only the pins together, start with the inner ring, second ring, fourth ring und third ring)

The pistol offers a battery case for 4 AA-batteries.
It can be hold in one hand, which can switch the buttons, so you have the other hand for your camera

Heart of the pistol is an naked arduino nano, i have soldered the switches an RGB leds direct on the board.
The sourcecode for the arduino comes with this thing!

Have fun on lightpainting!
