MODULE II & IIICAMERA ANGLE AND SHOTSMain Angels are: 1. The bird eye view angle: This shows a scene from directly the overhead and a very unnatural and strange angle. 2. High angle: Not so extreme as a bird eye view. The camera is elevated about the action using a crane to give a general over view. 3. Eye level angel: A fairly neutral shot, the camera is positioned as though it is a human actually observing a scene. 4. Low angle: Low angles help in providing a sense of confusing the viewers of powerlessness within the action. 5. Oblique or canted angle: Sometimes the camera is tilted to suggest imbalance transition and instability.Basic Camera Shots: 1. Extreme wide shot (EWS) 2. Wide shot (WS) 3. Mid shot (MS) 4. Medium close up (MCU) 5. Close up (CU) 6. Extreme close up (ECU)Camera Movements: 1. Pans: A movement which scans a scene horizontally. The camera is placed on a tripod, which operates as a stationary access point as the camera is turned, often to follow a moving object which is kept in the middle of the frame. 2. Tilts: A movement which scans a scene vertically, otherwise similar to PAN. 3. Dolly: The camera is placed on a moving vehicle and moves alongside the action, generally following a moving a picture or objects. 4. Hand held: The hand held moving camera was first of all used in World War II. In this type of camera movement the camera is controlled manually, but in some cases using some advance technologies and techniques the cameras are planted manually to meet demands of the script or production. 5. Crane: Crane shots are nothing but dolly shots in the air. 6. Aerial:Major Parts of Camera/some special features: 1. Microphone 2. Lens hood 3. Aperture ring

Battery packLIGHTINGThere are three types of light: 1. Key light: Key light is always placed at 45 degree from camera. 2. Fill light: Fill light is always placed at 30 degree from camera. 3. Back light: Back light is placed on the height of the presenter and strength or body language of the presenter. It is always behind the presenter to make difference between background and the presenter.
