Photography can feel overwhelming, but these adorable cheat sheet cards will give you the confidence to use your “real” camera on manual mode. This deck is perfect for any mom who wants to improve her photography skills and really understand how to manipulate camera settings to her advantage.

These cards have the exact same content as the Bright deck, just in different fonts & colors.


  • The set comes with 11 double-sided plastic cards, to reference on-the-go.
  • The cards are pocket-sized at 3 x 4 inches with rounded corners, threaded on a ring.
  • The cards are professionally printed on smooth, durable plastic so they can withstand years of use.
  • The deck has a super cute cover and fun color-coded borders to help you find pages quickly.


This deck is specifically for DSLR camera owners who want to learn how their settings work, and get out of automatic mode. Each card is full of helpful explanations and handy charts to help take better pictures.

There are 20 pages of tips (11 double-sided cards, plus covers and table of contents):

  • Exposure – aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and exposure charts
  • Shooting – how to shoot in manual mode, and a troubleshooting guide for what to do if a picture is too bright/dark/etc. (perfect for people who want to get off automatic mode!)
  • Camera Tips – white balance, semi-automatic modes, jpeg/raw files, and exposure compensation
  • How To… – these cards cover specific situations: how to get blurry backgrounds, how to get a sharp photo, and how to freeze motion.

The tips on the cards are aimed at an absolute beginner to an intermediate photographer who is learning how to use manual mode.
