    When did the use of "to shoot" came up?
    I assume this happened with the advert of small, eye-level cameras and long lenses.

    I think that's a darkroom that also has a "wet" bar. Unfortunately, as the printing session wears on, the prints get worse.

    All that ghastly 'artspeak' such as occluded, paradigm,interstitial, armature etc....It's not that the words are necessarily BS on their own, but some people seem to have a knack of putting them together to make them complete gibberish.

    The dry darkroom is the smallest bedroom in my place and that is were the enlarger and drum print dryer are used. The wet darkroom is where the paper is developed and washed. The JOBO processor is used in the kitchen.

    Exactly what is infuriated about that?

    Just for you - artspeak phrase generator. This came in handy during my years doing an MFA:

    My least favorite - giclée and digital darkroom. It bugs me when any word or phrase gets misused and bokeh is probably the one I've heard misused the most often.

    The worst bit of artspeak I ever encountered was a statement that the photo was "uniquilized" by scratching the print. I about gagged.
    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.

    "Seven aberrations of Seidel."

    Doh! A much-loved and hyped term among "the knowing" second only to bokeh.
    What does it matter, and why? Can we just call variations of lens characteristics "aberrations" rather than have to grasp for a lexicon?
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    You are much too intelligent to be listening to those dunderheads anyway.

    It seems to me that our objections can be grouped thusly:
    *Our terms that have been borrowed by the dark side without apparently understanding what borrowed terms mean.
    *Their terms that have been brought into our lexicon by dark siders who come into the film world to see what all the fuss is about here.
    When one of their words is used in our world, our world loses some of its purity. When one of our words is used on the dark side, we scoff.
    Should we be tolerant? Uh... no.
    The dark-siders who come into our world should be respectfully reeducated. At the same time, we should simply ignore what goes on in their world... It is their world after all. If they want to call a desk, PC, and ink jet printer a "dark room" then let them. We know what a darkroom is.
    I wonder, am I being respectful when I call the digital world the "dark side" :-)
