So I have been inspired.

A few weeks ago i picked up a few books so i could start to learn electronics and the Arduino interface.

Its pretty fun, Learning about what i can use my coding skills for on open source hardware.

My first project is to make a shutter control for my camera. Since i do long exposure photography with a welding grass filter, i need to leave my shutter open for 2-6min as well as time lapse control. I don’t particularly want to fork out $270+ for the canon equiv shutter control with lcd monitor.

I figured this would be a great time to start learning how to control hardware as well as i can control the software.

Books i picked up:

Make: Electronics

Make: Getting Started with Arduino

Practical Arduino

Some other useful web pages i have found for learning are:
Arduino shield & embedded electronics tutorials (sparkfun)
Arduino 14 part tutorial (Australian)
AdaFruit / Ada Industries Tutorials.
Virtual breadboarding.
Electronic schematics symbol help.

Hopefully as i progress i will remember to post some progress images.
