PHOTOGRAPHY EXPLAINED FROM A-Z
I spent around 2 1/2 hours typeing this up and putting it in alphabetical order. So i hope this helps someone or most of you out
Aberration: A lens fault (problem) in which light rays are scattered, degrading the image. Different types include:
Chromatic (colors and light wavelengths), Spherical (blurring in the center of a picture), coma (edge blurring),
astigmatism (light rays focused as a line, not a point), and field curvature (plane of sharpest focus is a curved surface).
Achromatic Lens: a lens constructed of different types of glass, used to reduce chromatic aberration.
Acutance: The objective measurement of how well an edge is recorded in a photograph.
Additive process: the process of combining lights of different colors.
Aerial process: The impression of depth in a scene, created by use of haze.
Anastigmat: A compound lens; reduces optical aberrations
Angle of view: The widest angle of those light rays used by a lens to form an acceptably shar
