" CHIMPING " #annieliebovitz @annie__leibovitz checking her photograph ( three images - Photographic Techniques, Part 2 of a series). This technique in digital photography is known as chimping. The term 'chimping' was first written about by Robert Deutsch, a USA Today staff photographer, in September 1999 when writing a story for the SportsShooter email newsletter. He did not invent the term but heard it passed down by word of mouth.
The term derives from the habit of the photographer looking at the picture in the LCD, and going "Ooh, ooh, ooh!" imitating the sound of a chimpanzee.
