Welcome to Our Photography Wiki!
Beginners to photography are often mystified about all the new terminology there is to learn!
So, we’ve compiled this expanding collection of photography terms and definitions to help make sense of it all!
Instructions for Use:
Terms are separated into groups, which are listed on the sub-menus to this page. If you know what term you’d like to find, you can enter select the sub-menu, and browse for that term.
If you’d just like to browse the different groups, you can click on any of the following links:
Anything related to the physical aspects of the camera. For example: camera shake, digital SLR, DSLR, point-and-shoot.
Any specific camera settings. For example: auto mode, ISO, shutter speed, white balance.
