Vocab Quiz #1 - Contact Sheet

Photography definitions

Hey, remember in school when you had a vocab quiz on Fridays? Here's a throwback for you then. Have you ever wondered where some of the terms in Photoshop come from like burning or dodging? Let's learn a few.

Contact Sheet: A contact sheet is a print out of thumbnails. So why is it called a contact sheet? Because in the old days of film you would take strips of negatives and organize them on photo paper and put a piece of glass on top to hold down the negatives. So then the negative made contact with the paper, hence a contact sheet.
