Photography acronyms/abbreviations

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Palouse, Jul 14, 2008.

  1. In another post Jim Fenton introduces us to several acronyms/abbreviations--some old,some new, for example:

    SBIF = shorebird in flight
    RIF = raptor in flight
    SIM = subject in motion
    SP = static photographer
    BATW = Birds against the water

    Some of the alphabet soup of Nikon lens terminology aside(EDIF; AFS-D, etc.) lets see if others have clever and newacronyms/abbreviations for us to use.

    Sure we have OOF, dof, CLS, but I'm looking for clever and new ones.
