  • Scrim (lighting)
    A scrim is a device used in the film and television industries, as well as by photographers, to modify properties of light.
  • Docking station
    In computing, a docking station or port replicator or dock provides a simplified way of "plugging-in" an electronic device such as a laptop computer to common peripherals.
  • Lensbaby
    Lensbaby is a line of camera lenses for SLR cameras that combine a simple lens with a bellows or ball and socket mechanism for use in special-effect photography.
  • Bayonet mount
    A bayonet mount (mainly as a method of mechanical attachment, as for fitting a lens to a camera) or bayonet connector (for electrical use) is a fastening mechanism consisting of a cylindrical male side with one or more radial pins, and a female receptor with matching L-shaped slot(s) and with spring(s) to keep the two parts locked together.
  • Micrograph
    A micrograph or photomicrograph is a photograph or digital image taken through a microscope or similar device to show a magnified image of an item.
  • Image editing
    Raster images are stored in a computer in the form of a grid of picture elements, or pixels.
  • Rangefinder
    A rangefinder is a device that measures distance from the observer to a target, in a process called ranging.
  • Night photography
    Night photography refers to photographs taken outdoors between dusk and dawn.
  • Camera phone
    A camera phone is a mobile phone which is able to capture photographs.
  • Astrophotography
    Astrophotography is a specialized type of photography for recording images of astronomical objects and large areas of the night sky.
  • Snoot
    In photography, a snoot is a tube or similar object that fits over a studio light or portable flash and allows the photographer to control the direction and radius of the light beam.
  • Perspective control
    Perspective control is a procedure for composing or editing photographs to better conform with the commonly accepted distortions in constructed perspective.
  • Airbrush
    An airbrush is a small, air-operated tool that sprays various media, most often paint but also ink and dye, by a process of nebulization.
  • Film scanner
    A film scanner is a device made for scanning photographic film directly into a computer without the use of any intermediate printmaking.
  • Bracketing
    In photography, bracketing is the general technique of taking several shots of the same subject using different camera settings.
  • Autostereogram
    An autostereogram is a single-image stereogram (SIS), designed to create the visual illusion of a three-dimensional (3D) scene from a two-dimensional image.
  • Depth of field
    In optics, particularly as it relates to film and photography, depth of field (DOF), also called focus range or effective focus range, is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image.
  • Framing (visual arts)
    In visual arts and particularly cinematography, framing is the presentation of visual elements in an image, especially the placement of the subject in relation to other objects.
  • Photo manipulation
    Photo manipulation involves transforming or altering a photograph using various methods and techniques to achieve desired results.
  • Photographic print toning
    In photography, toning is a method of changing the color of black-and-white photographs.
  • Strip photography
    Strip photography (or slit photography) is a photographic technique of capturing a 2-dimensional image as a sequence of 1-dimensional images over time, rather than a single 2-dimensional at one point in time (the full field).
  • Still camera
    A still camera is a type of camera used to take photographs.
  • Perspective distortion (photography)
    In photography and cinematography, perspective distortion is a warping or transformation of an object and its surrounding area that differs significantly from what the object would look like with a normal focal length, due to the relative scale of nearby and distant features.
  • Digital photograph restoration
    Digital photograph restoration is the practice of restoring the appearance of a digital copy of a physical photograph which has been damaged by natural, man made, or environmental causes or simply affected by age or neglect.
  • Afocal photography
    Afocal photography, also called afocal imaging or afocal projection is a method of photography where the camera with its lens attached is mounted over the eyepiece of another image forming system such as an optical telescope or optical microscope, with the camera lens taking the place of the human eye.
  • Autobracketing
    Autobracketing is a feature of some more advanced cameras, whether film or digital cameras, particularly single-lens reflex cameras, where the camera will take several successive shots (often three) with slightly different settings.
