  • 1. Shots and AnglesCOMM-1067Information and CommunicationTechnologyMiss BaldaroUnit 2. Activity 3, 2011
  • 2. Rule of Thirds
    Within a camera’s frame, the image is divided into two equally spaced horizontal and vertical lines creating 9 parts. Important elements should be placed along these lines.
  • 3. Establishing Shot
    This shot shows the subject in the environment; the viewer is able to see the full image of the subject with ample surrounding.
  • 4. Extreme Long Shot
    These can be up to ¼ km long and is used to set the scene. It usually shows an outside of a building or a landscape.
  • 5. Long Shot
    This shot shows the subject in its entirety from head to toe. The head is near the top of the frame and the feet near the bottom.
  • 6. Medium Shot
    This contains the subject from the waist or knee level up to the head, it is mainly used in dialogue.
  • 7. Chest Shot
    The setting in the background is still visible, the lower frame line cuts through the subject leaving just their chest and head.
  • 8. Close Up
    These shots are very intimate shots. They magnify the subject and emphasize either the subject or object that is deemed important.
  • 9. Extreme Close-Up
    These are just a more extreme version of the close up which magnifies the image further, almost to the point which is surreal to the human eye.
  • 10. Over the Shoulder
    This shot shows what the subject or main person is looking at or interacting with. It is usually followed immediately by the reverse angle showing the main person looking.
  • 11. Two Shot
    This shot show cases two people in the same scene and their interaction with each other.
  • 12. Point of View
    This is a first person shot that shows the view from the subject’s perspective.
  • 13. Bird’s Eye View
    This shot shows a scene from directly above. It is an aerial view looking down on the scene.
  • 14. Eye Level
    This shot is positioned where the subject’s eyes are directly level with the camera.
  • 15. High Angle Level
    The camera in this shot is elevated above the subjects head to emphasize actions.
  • 16. Low Angle Level
    This shot is very much the opposite of the high angle level shot, showing the action from an upward perspective rather than a downward one on the subject.
  • 17. Oblique Shot
    This is when the camera is tilted. It shows an imbalance and is often thought to be unstable.
