Those who have played Subterranean Animism will recognize this pattern. The same general strategy applies here as well. wait for the red bullets to appear, then move out of the way. The red bullets are aimed for your exact position so a tap in focused speed will save your life. As the red bullets clump together, it's your chance for a shot. Run up and take a picture of Yamame when she fires her next wave. Rinse and Repeat. On the last shot she fires two blue circles. Keep an eye out for stray blue bullets as these can get you if you don't pay attention to them.

Spin Umbrella Spin. There will be constant swirls of blue and green bullets being fired and after a few seconds Kogasa will release a 'splash' of red bubbles. This is the best oppurtunity to take pictures, so use that to your advantage. After two pictures she'll fire two consecutive splashes. Remember to get out of the way. On the last picture she'll fire four consecutive splashes, leaving you with not as much room as you'd like to have. To avoid being trapped, start at one side of the screen and head to the other at moderate speed. When your camera is charged, run up and get a picture as she fires the first splash.

釣瓶「飛んで井の中」
Well Bucket "Flying in a Well"
Owner
Kisume
Level 3 — 3
Editor's Comment
As Kisume comes down, she fires red kunai in an arc-like formation, and as she retreats up, she fires medium sized white bullets. The kunai are aimed for your general location, so a tap to the side wont save you here. For the best score, it's a good idea to follow Kisume on her way up and take a picture when the bullets are the thickest. Remember to get out of the way of the kunai and don't hang out too far up the screen, else Kisume will charge right into you.

First of all, do NOT run around like crazy. That WILL NOT work. All it will do is get you killed or you'll be running in circles for the entire spell. Second, no matter where you are on the screen when the spell starts, Yamame will fire straight down. When the card starts, move slightly to the right or left, then move in the other direction in charge speed. Once your camera is charged run up and snap a picture. Be careful not to hit the bullet line on the way up or down. After you've snapped a picture, run back down and slip over to the other side of the line and repeat the process. After the second picture, the rebounded red line will split into bullets when it collides with a wall. Be wary of these bullets and try not to break your charge too much, else you'll get trapped in a corner.

虹符「オーバー・ザ・レインボー」
Rainbow Sign "Over The Rainbow"[1]
Owner
Kogasa Tatara
Level 3 — 5

While it is possible to go through the rainbow, it's very dangerous and requires precise timing. There is a gap in the upper corner oppsite the side the rainbow comes from that can be used as a safe zone in the first picture, however, due to the rain that comes after the first picture, this safe zone become unreliable. The best way to beat this card is to stay close to the middle and take pictures to create gaps in the rainbow. Between pictures stay in constant charge mode so you'll have a full charge when the rainbow comes back. When moving through the gap you created, be careful not to get rammed by Kogasa as she moves along the top of the screen.

釣瓶「ウェルディストラクター」
Well Bucket "Well Destructor"
Owner
Kisume
Level 3 — 6

Avoid staying too close to Kisume, else you might have one of three things happen, that is, get tackled, get a bullet spawned on top of you, or get a laser directly in your face. So try to maintain a safe distance. The lasers are aimed for your position, so technically, if you're far enough away, you can dodge them with only charge speed, however this is dangerous close up, so i'd advise using charge speed as little as possible. The white bullets only move vertically, the ones she spawns at the bottom will fly upward, and the ones she spawns at the top will fall downward, So be careful not to pack them into s corner. Kisume will follow your horizontal position as best she can, so be wary of this. After she's fired three lasers, she'll make a charge noise which indicates she's about to head to the opposite vertical, as she departs she'll fire one more laser, so be careful not to get hit. Also make sure you aren't in Kisume's way when she moves across the screen. A general circle like rectangular movement is a good strategy to avoid all three threats. Take pictures when you have a full charge, and if you don't mind being a bit risky for extra points, try to take pictures as Kisume is making her way up or down the screen, as this will give you a nice shot bonus.

毒符「樺黄小町」
Poison Sign "Japanese Foliage Spider"
Owner
Yamame Kurodani
Level 3 — 7

You will need to be quick with card. Once Yamame has made the 'tock' sound and the circle that comes with that has vanished, Yamame has also vanished. You'll want to charge quickly and snap a picture before she disappears. Besides that, you need to react quickly to the bullets she spawns, else you can die. For more points you can attempt a nice shot, but unless your timing is good, it's not a recommended strategy.

傘符「細雪の過客」
Umbrella Sign "Flurry Travelers"

First thing first, the umbrella's hit box is the same size as their sprite, so keep that in mind. Other than that this is a simple card. The rain is perfectly vertical, so it's easy to read ahead of time. The umbrellas have a more erratic movement pattern, so be watchful of them. Dodge through the rain and take your pictures when you're ready.
