Assignment 4 - camera shots, movement, angles and compisition

  1. 1. Assignment 4; Camera shots, camera angles, camera movement and composition. I am completing the task in red.
  2. 2. Camera Angle.• High.• Low.• Canted or Oblique.
  3. 3. High Angle.Is a bit similar to over the head but is taken from a higher distance of theobject.
  4. 4. Low Angle.Is when the camera is facing up on the object so it looks like the object is bigger than itreally is.
  5. 5. Camera Shots.• Establishing shots.• Wide Shot.• Long Shot.• Mid/ Medium Shot.• Close Up Shot.• Extreme Close Up Shot.• Point Of View.• Over The Shoulder Shot.• Two Shot.• Arial Shot.• Over The Head Shot.
  6. 6. Establishing Shot.Establishes a setting or scene, often giving viewer information about where ascene is set. It can be from a range of distances from wide/long shots of wholecities or wide shots of a place in a city or a house or even a close up of a sign.Establishing shots are normally at the beginning of a scene to give clarity to theaudience of the setting.
  7. 7. Wide Shot.This shot is wide and shows a large variety of information, like a panoramicphotograph. Often establishing shots are wide shots. Wide shots could be used toshow everyone within a room or at a dinner table.
  8. 8. Long Shot.The framing of an object or character containing thier whole body or frame.
  9. 9. Mid Shot.Framing of a character or subject of their torso (mostly torso and head but can alsobe torso and legs).
  10. 10. Close Up Shot.Framing of a character or object or some particular part of their body of object such asface, hand or details of an object such as a fork.
  11. 11. Extreme Close Up Shot.A shot that is of a part of the body or face to show extreme detail to the audience togive them more information or detail about that particular character or object.
  12. 12. Over The Shoulder Shot.A shot which is filmed as if its from the back of the characters shoulder. Thecharacter facing the subject usually occupies 1/3 of the frame but it could varydepending on purpose. For example if the shot is to show the character facing theaudience is very inferior perhaps they would only occupy ¼ of the overall shot.
  13. 13. Two Shot.Is of two characters communicating, interacting or conversing. Usually used tosignify or show a relationship between the two characters.
  14. 14. Camera Movement.• Pan.• Tilt.• Tracking.• Zooming.• Slow Zoom.• Fast Zoom.• Reverse Zoom.• Dolly.• Crone.• Stedicam.• Vertigo.
  15. 15. Pan.Pan is when the camera slowly moves from side of the room to another very slowly.Or pivots horizontally from left to right.
  16. 16. Tilt.Tilt is when the camera is slightly slanted in a 45 degree angle. It is also theopposite of pan because the camera pivots vertically either from top tobottom.
  17. 17. Zoom:Zoom is when a camera just zooms in the speed can very.
  18. 18. Reverse Zoom.Reverse zoom opposite of zoom it’s just coming out.
  19. 19. Composition.• Balance.• Symmetry.• Unsymmetrical.• Rule of Thirds.• Depth Of Field.• Shallow Focus.• Deep Focus
  20. 20. Depth Of Field.Depth of field is the distance of what is in focus in the actual shot.
  21. 21. Shallow Focus.Shallow focus is one thing in focus and the other things in the background isblurred out. It is used to emphasise one thing over another.
  22. 22. Balance. Balance is when something is balanced on the same page.By: Maria Fashakin 12.P
