Learn photography while learning about the world around you.
There is something magical about creating a photo that captures a unique moment in time where the image that comes out of the camera is greater than the individual parts of the scene as it appeared to the photographer's eye.
Learning to create photos like this comes with experience and a little luck, but also by training your creativity to see the world differently.
Zoom In Reach Out Photo Cards can help you learn these skills and more, all from a fun and casual deck of cards. To Get started, simply shuffle the deck and select one of 54 cards which will give you ideas, tips, and photography techniques.
