It’s true! That’s probably why you didn’t struggle to read that. We are so used to cutting corners and creating shortcuts. Is it because we’re always in a hurry? Or maybe the opposite...perhaps we’re downright lazy? Whatever the case may be, there’s no exception when it comes to photography terms. I’ve put together a list of common photography abbreviations and acronyms (CPAA...I made that one up, I wonder if it’ll catch on?).
Thorough definitions for a lot CPAA’s are accessible by clicking on the link provided next to the name. This article will constantly be updated and new definitions are being added on a regular basis. Be sure to check back often!
If you don’t feel like scrolling through to find the CPAA you’re looking for (or if you don’t have the time!), at the top left of your screen, click on Edit>Find on this Page... (or on your keyboard, type Ctrl+F), this will open a window where you can type the CPAA that you’re looking for. Once you’ve done this, simply click on the Next button and the word you’re looking for will be highlighted on the page. Not the one you want? Click Next again, until the word you want is highlighted.
