  1. Aperture
    - The variable opening produced by the iris-diaphragm through which light passes to the film plane. Measured in f/stops.
  2. Aperture Priority
    - Autoexposure systems wherein the photographer selects the aperture and the camera selects the appropriate shutter speed.
  3. ASA
    • - American Standards Association; (see ISO).
    • B (Bulb)- At the B setting, the shutter remains open as long as the shutter release button remains fully depressed.
  4. Bracketing
    • - Take a series of pictures at different exposures.
    • Burning- Providing extra exposure to an area of the print to make it darker, while blocking light from the rest of the print.
  5. Depth of Field
    - The range of acceptably sharp focus in front of and behind the distance the lens is focused on.
  6. Dodging
    - Blocking a portion of the light when printing a photograph so that an area of the image will be made lighter.
  7. Element
    - One piece of glass comprising the internal optics of a lens.
  8. Exposure
    - Light striking a sensitized material (film or paper emulsion).
  9. Fisheye
    - An ultra-wide angle lens which purposely introduces barrel distortion so straight lines near the edges of the frame appear to curve out.
  10. Flare
    - Image degradation caused by stray light which passes through the lens but is not focused to form the primary image. Often caused by light bouncing off internal air-toglass surfaces.
  11. Focal Length
    - The distance from the optical center of a lens to the image plane when the lens is focused to infinity.
  12. ISO
    - International Standards Organization; the number represents the film's sensitivity to light. A higher ISO number indicates the film is more sensitive and requires less light for a proper exposure.
  13. Photography
    - From the Greek the means "painting or writing with light."
  14. Shutter Speed
    - How fast the camera's shutters open. Determines how long the film is exposed for.
  15. Shutter Priority
    - When the photographer selects the shutter speed and the camera automatically sets the corresponding aperture.
  16. SLR
    - Single Lens Reflex; a camera with one lens (as opposed to Twin Lens Reflex like the Rolleiflex) that involves a mirror and prism that the viewer looks through (as opposed to a point and shoot or rangefinder where the viewer looks through a separate viewfinder.
  17. Sunny-16 Rule-
    • A guideline that states that you can expose a normal scene, lit by bright sunlight, at an aperture of f16 and a shutter speed equivalent to the film speed (ISO or
    • ASA) being used.
  18. TTL
    - Through-the-lens; commonly used when referring to metering through the lens as opposed to via a separate meter.
