Inspiration and assignment cards for photography enthusiasts
Flashcards to get you out shooting in new and exciting ways
The bigger picture cards include learning exercises from various fields of photography. The tasks focus on seeking, identifying, and arranging subjects. Completing the tasks will help you take better, more interesting photos more quickly. The deck includes 10 knowledge cards and 40 task cards. The knowledge cards provide information on the basics of photographic composition. The task cards show a sample photo for inspiration and the task to be completed. You can expect some real challenges here!
This is how it works: separate the knowledge cards from the task cards anddraw onecard from each group. The combination of the two cards is your photo task. Beginners can start by drawing just a task card and completing only those. Take your time doing the tasks. Choose different approaches and perspectives to complete them. But above all, be open to experimenting and having fun. Ifyou solvethetasks, show us yourresults on Flickr, Google+ or Facebook.
