c.1 Lighting - The intensity, direction, and quality of lighting have a profound effect on the way an image is perceived. Light affects the way colors are rendered, both in terms of hue and depth, and can focus attention on particular elements of the composition.
c.1.2 HIGH-KEY LIGHTING – the fill light is raised to almost the same level as key light; produces very bright images and features few shadows on the principal subject
c.1.3 LOW-KEY LIGHTING – very little fill light, creating strong contrasts between the brightest and darkest parts of an image and often creating strong shadows. Usually seen on suspense, thriller films
c.2 Space – The representation of space affects the reading of a film. Depth, proximity, size and proportions of the places and objects in a film can be manipulated through camera placement and lenses, lighting , decor , effectively determining mood or relationships between elements in the diegetic world.
c.2.1 DEEP SPACE/SHALLOW SPACE – significant elements of an image are positioned both near to and distant from the camera. Do not necessarily have to be in defocus / focus. Staging in deep space is the opposite for shallow space
DEPTH OF FIELD- zone of sharp focus
DOF is shallow at big aperture, also at telephoto lens
moderate at f5.6
extensive at small apertures, also at wide angle setting
3. 180-DEGREE RULE- screen direction refers to the right or left direction on screen as seen by the audience. The 180-degree rule/director’s line tells how to maintain when different shots from the same scene are edited together. Used in conversations.
CONTINUITY- usually several takes of the same scripted action are shot, in part because actors blunder and crew members make technical errors. Allow for an overlap of action for the purpose of editing. Solutions: cutaway, dissolve effect in editing to show time lapse, pull back (either zoom or dolly out)
CUTAWAY- a shot away from the main action to cover discontinuities.
Perhaps a general rule is that films made in the classical continuity style point of view usher the viewer through the progress of the narrative. Films that depend on mise-en-scene ask true viewer to pause and examine the compositional spaces of the narrative. The classical continuity style is directive the mise-en-scene style contemplative.
Sunlight- light that comes directly from the sun. It’s hard light that cast strong shadows
Daylight- sunlight should not be confused with daylight. Daylight is a combination of sunlight and skylight. The light is both hard directional, and soft directional at the same time. It has shadowa that are strong and diffused at the same time.
Ambient- it is the most diffused light source. A completely overcast day is essentially shadowless lighting. The entire sky, hoeizon to horizon , becomes the light source
