    I quite agree on the non-photo terms, particularly 'agile'.

    On photo terms, referring to one's camera collection as an 'arsenal', I don't really like.

    The title of the thread was clear, and I made my post pertaining to the subject. But now that you've broached the subject, I'd say the one expression blithering about peoples' lips today that galls me to no end, is calling people a Hyphenated-American.

    I don't like the word Analog as in APUG. I rather call it film photography rather than analog.
    I don't like the words shoot and shot.

    What is a Hyphenated-American?

    Unfortunately photography has become a handmaiden of the computer industry Tom since the marketing men re- invented the wheel with digital photography.

    What would you suggest we say when we use some elements to balance or frame others? Would other terms be any more effective/less annoying?

    It gets to a point where you have to get over petty annoyances and just take pictures.

    I guess I would prefer people responded to photographs with more instinctual reactions. Suppose someone tells me one of my photographs has nice movement or balance or something about how some part of it leads the eye to another part etc. Leaves me pretty cold. Even if it is meant as a compliment I'd rather they just said the picture sucks.

    I must admit to being amused by that usage of 'analog' since even digital capture is 'analog' at the sensor light capture level; it must be fed through an ADC (analog to digital converter) to become 'digital'.


    Film Photography Users Group is probably more accurate, but I'm not sure the term FPUG goes over well.
