    I never like to see "Matt" being used incorrectly
    Matt

    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

    ... though matte would be ok too but would identify the text as possibly archaic or pretentious...

    ...unlike that extra "u" in color, etc .

    Spelling differences- do they matte-r? I mean, matt-er. I mean, ummm...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Would you like to cut a window mat for that matte surface print?

    Matt appears to be a shortened modern version of matte. Language changes, I guess, but I don't want to misuse Matt. He's too nice of a guy.

    Better for Twitter, I guess, with only 140 characters available for one's deathless tweets! (And, one must avoid the Oxford comma, too!)

    As a geezer, I use matte, the Oxford comma and hyphens.

    Thanks Simon-I have lots of images which would be great with this.

    What an amazing thread title to behold...

    "When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

    — Edward Weston, Daybooks, Vol. II, February 2, 1932
