Photography is an expansive field with a long history. While getting into it can seem daunting, there are many tips and tricks that will help make your images shine. But if you find that you need a refresher every once in a while, you’ll want to have The Photography Deck on hand. It's a camera reference sheet printed onto a deck of playing cards. Not only can you play a round of solitaire, but you can also have the rules and techniques of photography easily snuggled in your pocket. The compact size makes it perfect when you are out and about with a camera in hand.

To organize this resource, creator Eric Bohring assigned each suit its own category of information: spades represent camera basics; hearts are about composition; clubs tell you about technical aspects; and diamonds highlight shooting styles. This array of knowledge gets to the nitty-gritty of photography and discusses concrete topics like ISO and shutter speeds as well as more subjective aspects such as finding negative space or patterns in a composition. Each card highlights this information through custom artwork that is minimalist in style to let the tricks and tips shine.

The Photography Deck is now available for pre-order. There are a variety of deck designs available, including a variant that is extra waterproof and can withstand a day at the beach. Select your deck by visiting the deck's Kickstarter page.

The Photography Deck is a pocket-sized photography resource that doubles as playing cards.
