Glossary

Our Glossary contains an alphabetical listing of many of the terms used in photography, accompanied by definitions. In a number of cases, more in-depth information on the term can be found by clicking on text links contained in the definitions.


Many of the terms associated with film processing, darkroom work, the newest advances in digital photography, the history of photography and highly-technical terms have not yet been included. We continually update the Glossary over time and as new terms become introduced. Our ultimate objective is to present our viewers with the most comprehensive and thorough list of photography terms and definitions on the internet.


SUBMIT A TERM


Should you know of a term that should be included here, we’d be grateful if you’d let us know.


TERMS FOR WHICH YOU CAN’T FIND DEFINITIONS


Perhaps you have come across a term in a photography reference, and you don’t know what it means. If it’s not already in our Glossary, ask us. We will do our best to provide you with an accurate, easy-to-understand definition, which we’ll then add to the Glossary to benefit others.


DEFINITIONS WE GIVE THAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND


It may happen that a definition of ours is too concise, uses terminology with which you aren’t familiar, or is just badly-written so it’s not clear and easy-to-understand. If you come across any problems with any term in our Glossary, please let us know and we’ll take steps to correct them at once.
