New Words for the English language

New Words for the English language

Postby The Man with the Corrugated Iron Roof » Thu Jan 23, 2014 10:09 am

Last night I did some constellation shots and my first few frames were done with a high ISO setting, when I really wanted to do 800: http://sungazer127mak.blogspot.fr/2014/ ... -2014.html

As a result I have invented 2 new verbs:

1. To over-ISO: to use an ISO setting that is higher than one intended

2. To under-ISO: to use an ISO setting that is lower than one intended
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

I think that just boils down to under and over exposure. May be.

If you want a new word in the jargon of photography then you need to know about Bokeh - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh - assuming of course that you don't already know it. :-)
