OK, call me slow. I did wonder for a while until I finally looked this up:
What one does after taking a picture with a digital camera and looking at the result. Derived from the words they speak when chimping: "Ooo-oo-oo!"
(Made me laff my arse off).
So, what's that reaction when you see your print appear in the developer in the darkroom?
I don't think it was a chimp-like experience.
Personally, I lumber around like a dancing chimp and make similar sounds only I throw rolled up prints in the air beside the enlarger.
The joys of "chimping" are denied to me I don't own a digital camera,and I don't feel that anything is missing in my life,and I often think to myself for what a decent DSLR costs I could buy a used Hasselblad, a real camera, and I wouldn't need to learn photography all over again.
I love shooting film and I wish I can continue to do so for a long time!
I do not like the anticipation and was the reason why I learn and do darkroom work so I can see my results sooner.
I do not like surprises and was the reason I do testing, studying and developing techniques that I can accurately know what I am getting at the time I release the shutter.
