Imagine a super useful camera reference sheet which is printed on a deck of uniquely designed playing cards
Each numbered card illustrates the most important rules and techniques about photography. Each of the court cards has uniquely designed camera artwork.
Think of them as pocket-sized cheat sheets that you can bring wherever you travel.
The info on the cards can be combined so you will have everything you need for ANY shooting situation.
Each of the suits contains one of the four different categories of information:
- Spades - Camera Basics
- Hearts - Composition
- Clubs - Technical
- Diamonds - Shooting Styles
HEARTS are dedicated to Composition. The most important principles and techniques such as negative space, symmetry, patterns, leading lines, depth & layers, framing, rule of odds, rule of thirds, fibonacci & golden ratio are explained in custom designed illustrations.
SPADES are dedicated to Camera Basics. These cards illustrate standard principles such as the exposure triangle, aperture, shutter speed, ISO, focal length, depth-of-field, shooting modes, sensor size and exposure interval.
CLUBS are dedicated to Technicals. I collated the most important topics such as manual shooting, white balance, color theory, understanding and reading a histogram, understanding the different types of filters, metering modes, RAW & JPG, focus modes and drive modes. Once again, all topics are described with custom illustrations.
DIAMONDS describe different Shooting Styles and the most commonly used settings. I illustrated styles like flash photography, macro, sports & motion, portrait photography & bokeh, landscape, sunset, night, astro & long exposure among other topics.
The deck has a micro linen finish which feels great in the hands. It is very lightweight yet durable and suitable for rapid shuffling. The Limited edition deck even uses German black core paper which is considered Casino grade and suitable for cardistry. The Standard edition uses a high quality grade blue core paper. The tuckbox is made from colored cardboard which is sturdy and durable and features beautiful gold and silver foil stamping and embossing. The waterproof variant uses high quality PVC instead of paper and I am currently looking for ways to make the tuckbox waterproof also. Details will be confirmed in the backer updates.
