    The Principles and Elements of Art (as well as design) are a long-formalized list describing the process and product of artwork and the making of art. It is an, if not the appropriate means to discuss artwork that permits people to engage in the work beyond saying "I like it" or "I don't like it". Of course there will always be some that eschew anything academic for a variety of reasons. My point is that such a vocabulary is neither meaningless nor inappropriate.

    For the word I dislike as it is most commonly used in relation to photography, see my signature.
    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    Somone who is described as the 'Author' of a photograph. Authors write not take pictures.

    I'll counter that one as well. Someone who is described as a 'worker' when it comes to photography. This term seems to be pretty much only used in Photography clubs (from my experience).

    Bokeh and capture, I spent the first forty years of photography not knowing either. My special hell is reserved for 'workflow'. I assume this means shooting everything in digital RAW and spending hours mulling over each frame to decide whether it should be monochrome, colour, HDR, or something else from software fantasy world, but have never been interested enough to ask.

    For me the term "wet" darkroom is infuriating. Digital photographers (digitographers) don't work in any place which remotely resembles a darkroom. It may be a studio, an office, or ,God forbid, a cubicle, but they definitely do not work in a darkroom. So why a "wet" darkroom?!

    One can divide a darkroom into two sections: one for loading cassettes etc. and exposing prints etc. and another for doing the processing

    I agree.

    Hate to admit it, but I've probably used a lot of these betes noires at some point or other. There is one, and only one term that annoys the f**k out of me, and that's fine-art photography.
