  • inspiring – awareness – informative – getting involved – time sensitive
  • Note for me: jed will elaborate on inappropriate and appropriate use of zoom, wide, close up, etc. lead to that being there.
  • Two types of wedding videos;1. The videographer sets the camera up in the balcony and shoots the ceremony. One angle, one take. 2. The videographer captures pieces of a story - they capture the faces of the loved ones watching – the reactions of the wedding party – dancing and celebrating at the reception – maybe even some interviews of people attending – why they are there and best wishes for the bride and groom.
  • I still struggle with – laziness. Find myself waiting on things to happen when I should be anticipating moments. Getting myself involved in things might seem imposing to the subject or event – but missed opportunities of getting the moment are hard to swallow.
  • Wide shot – you are establishing the environment where the events of your story will be taking place. This will help the audience orientate themselves within the story. Medium shot – engages the viewer to the characters of the story – shows who the story will be focusing on. Close-up shot – Shows the details of the story – pieces that make of the story elements.
  • I wanted to orientate the 4-H TV youth in the building at the fairgrounds. The story is not centered on the building, so I did not need a large establishing shot. This scene is just about one youth teach another how to use the camera.
  • The medium shot is not that different from the wide, but it does focus the viewer specifically on our two youths and what they are discussing.
  • The close up is simply the detail of what they are talking about. Notice, the camera is about as large as they were in the medium shot. A wider shot over the youths shoulder would not have illustrated that the camera is what they are discussing – that detail would have been lost in all of the information of the wider image.
  • Looking at camera placement here – this is looking straight down at the placement of the previous medium shot.
  • Side by side.
  • To get the close up – I got over the shoulder of the youth to shoot what they were looking at.
  • The should in the right hand corner helps orientate the viewer.
