Thread: Chinese photography terms/jargons

    Smile Chinese photography terms/jargons

    As i am trying to relate some photographic terms in chinese, could not find in on clubsnap. This is what i found from another site. I find it hard to discuss about photography with chinese friends.

    If anyone of you have others to share feel free to share it with the rest. Google translate does not help much

    I personally want to know what is ISO, noise control, critique and complimentary comments in chinese.

    Thanks in advance.

    底片感光度 is ISO

    As a side note, there is this chinese forum aka fengniao but the last time i tried to join but cannot because they need some ? china registered number to verify or something.
    Anyone got any luck ?

    some of my suggestions:

    Feel free to be yourself - 不必太拘束 / 放轻松 / 自然點
    no smile necessary - 不必笑
    Donít mind me - 不必在意我 / 不必理我
    One more, please - 再来一个
    No peace sign, please - 请别做V手势
