Back in 1888, George Eastman produced one of America’s first successful commercial cameras called the detective camera. It’s a kind of camera a detective would've loved. It was small and simple to operate, but there was no viewfinder and no way to focus. You just pointed at something, pressed the button and hoped for the best. When you finished the roll film, you send the whole camera to Eastman’s company in New York. Later your new photos will be sent to you along with your camera reloaded with fresh film for more picture-taking. It was a massive success. By the 1890s, people were talking about taking snapshots, a term originally used by hunters when they took a quick shot without aiming at a fast moving animal. Since that time, the world of photography has given us numerous words and phrases like “Say Cheese”. Most recently, we've encountered the term “Photobomb”. That’s when we purposely or accidentally put ourselves in someone else’s photograph. Photobombs can be funny and entertaining. There are entire websites devoted to these kinds of pictures. In 2014, Collins English Dictionary named “Photobomb” its word of the year.在1888年，美國有一位George Eastman開始大量生產照相機，一直到現在，跟拍照相關的詞彙也不斷地再增加，像snapshot這個字，原本來自打獵，當地的人看到一個獵物，來不及瞄準就直接向獵物開槍，那就是一個snapshot，後來人們把這個字沿用到攝影表示快拍。另外還有 Say “Cheese” 那是拍照的時候，攝影師為了讓照相的人露出笑容，就會說 Say “Cheese”，因為當我們說 “Cheese”，我們的嘴角就會向兩邊拉開，就會像在笑一樣。最近幾年還產生了 photobomb 這個字，所謂的照片炸彈是指一個突然被突然搶入鏡頭的人、動物或任何東西破壞的照片，這種破壞可以是意外的，也可以是惡作劇，如果有一張照片的背景裡，破壞畫面的東西超好笑、很經典，我們就可以說 That’s the best photobomb ever!
