ƒ-Stop It Already

Black Hollyhock — our first almost truly black flower


I'm a sucker for photo quizzes, but I always seem to get a big fat ƒ-stop on them because 1) I've never been much of an acronymphomaniac (can't remember what those letters and numbers mean), and 2) the establishment doesn't agree with me about what I think are perfectly reasonable definitions of photographic terms. After taking a recent photo term quiz, I looked back at earlier blogs and noticed I had done the same quiz in 2011 and came up with mostly the same answers, and the same failing ƒ-stop score of 0:

1. F Stop: — The metro stop between E and G on the Red Line.

2. Depth of Field: — How far you sink in the mud when it rains.

3. Matrix: — The green numbers that fall from the top of my computer screen.

4. Resolution: — Beatles songs on iTunes.

5. Flash: — A partial wardrobe malfunction.

6. Exposure: — A complete wardrobe malfunction.

7. Exposure Compensation: — The settlement over a wardrobe malfunction.

8. Rule of Thirds: — 3.33333333333333333333333333.

9. Diaphragm: — A contraceptive device.

10. ISO: — The opposite of ISNOT.

11. Chromatic aberration: — A white guy.

12. APO: — Abnormal performance option (special effects).

13. Sunny-16 Rule: — Always check ID, she may only look 21.

14. SLR:  — Sharp Looking Rectangle.

15. Golden Rectangle: — An expensive SLR.


The third sit/stand desk I've built using a Beseler 45 MXT enlarger chassis for the motorized lift.
