    “When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”— Ansel Adams

     

    The theme this month is Photography  and it comes from dougw .   His idea was to build any projects involving photos.  You could do projects involving stop action photography by combining timers and photography to create stop action photography video projects or any number of projects involving image processing and cameras.  You could do TinyML projects using OpenMV as covered in Build Powerful Wildlife & Livestock Trackers with OpenMV and Edge Impulse, a computer vision project involving AI such as the drone project in Arduino Day Workshop: NanoDrone II: AI and Computer Vision with LoRa (Win a PSoC6 and a Pair of MKR 1300 Boards!) ,  training a neural network such as in LDR Camera #10 : The Artificial Neural Network (SimonnV5) and LDR Camera #8 : Fully Working Camera , using advanced vision and frame manipulation for obstacle avoidance such as in BBAI Seein' Around Corners, Talkin', IoT Exploitin' Backup Car Cam with Onboard Vision AI ,  FPGA such as in SecuCam #2: Hardware Accelerated Motion Detection with the PYNQ-Z2, robotic automation such as Episode 489: Build An FPV Rover with Raspberry Pi , augmented reality such as ARBot #5 : The Final Working (after a fashion) System , and even a Lego Camera such as Episode 465: Lego Raspberry Pi HQ Camera.   There's a lot scope to these projects so share your project ideas below and help inspire one another to get as creative as possible!  If your project idea involves the Raspberry Pi HQ Camera then we'll send you a Raspberry Pi 4 B,  a Raspberry Pi HQ module, and a 12 MP lens to help you turn your idea into a reality.  We're giving away up to 5 Raspberry Pi HQ kits as a promotion.  You can still use whatever hardware you like but we'll pick a few project proposals to send kits to!

     

     

     

     

     

    Here are some projects to inspire you:
