Language intrigues me. When did "shoot" become associated with photography? Isn't it an odd word when connected with the capturing of images? Hmmm.

"Shoot" has so long been associated with photography that I have never paused to ask for how long and why. "Shoot" in moviemaking has long been a term for a session of filming at a given place--"We're doing a shoot at the Empire State Building on Thursday." And I;ve known photographers who called themselves shooters.

A recent crime novel had some fun with words;s dual meanings: Duane Swierczynski's Point and Shoot.
