The Photographic
Glossary

The photo dictionary is looking for jargon, can you help?

Let me know if you have found a word not listed in the glossary. Because the photographers vocabulary is continually changing and every new photographic process or new camera equipment has a special term or description there will always be a few terms not covered and these missing words will probably both confuse and bewilder. Why not contact me if you have that new term or jargon, you could help others who also haven't a clue what that jargon means! I will then add it to the list with a simple definition.
