Camera movement and compositionPresentation Transcript
Pan• Panning is a camera movement technique that involves moving the camera horizontally to the right or left.• With this technique you can track an object or follow any type of movement. Be very careful with jerky action though
Tilt• The tilt shot is similar to the pan shot, but the tilt shot moves vertically.
Track• Tracking shots involve the use of dollies to pull the camera around a scene. A tracking shot can be done hand held, using a steady cam, but they are more commonly shot with dollies.
Dolly• The camera is put onto a which moves along a track smoothly.• This is similar to a tracking shot.
Crane• The Camera is put onto a crane which can move upwards.
Steadicam• Has the freedom of a hand held shot but it has a stabilization device which smoothes out the bumpiness of it being hand held.
Hand Held• The camera is held by the camera operator• However they are often bumpy and unsteady shots.
Zoom• A camera shot that changes smoothly from a long shot to a close up.
Reverse• A single shot which moves away from the particular subject.
Framing• This is how the shot is composed and how the subjects and objects are surrounded in the shot.
Rule of thirds• This is a compositional rule that suggest an image should be divided into nine equal parts, by two equally horizontal and vertical lines.• At the intersections, important composition elements should be placed along these lines or their intersections.
Depth of field• This refers to the distance between the nearest and the furthest objects that give an image judged to be in focus on a camera.• Deep Focus – This is a technique that uses a large depth of field• Shallow Focus – This uses a small depth of field.
Focus Pull• This is where the focus is changed during a shot.• Usually adjusting focus from one subject to another subject.
