Establishing shot• An establishing shot in filmmaking and television production sets up, or establishes the context for a scene by showing the relationship between its important figures and objects. It is generally a long- or extreme long shot at the beginning of a scene indicating where, and sometimes when, the remainder of the scene takes place.
Wide shot• The one on the left is an extreme wide shot where you can catch more in the picture but it is not very detailed at which because it is not really focusing on anything its just one whole picture that were looking at.• The one on the right is an very wide shot where you are abit further in than the one on the left but still not focusing on anything bar the whole image, there for we are just interested in whatever we see there is not a main eye catcher.
Medium shot• In film, a medium shot is a camera angle shot from a medium distance. It shows half the body of a human, its not a close up but its not a big distance shot either. It sometimes from the waist upwards normally shows the expression and body language of the person in the image.
Close up• Close-ups are used in many ways, for many reasons. Close-ups are often used as cutaways from a more distant shot to show detail, such as characters emotions.
Medium close up• Between a close up and a mid shot. Of a person, this camera shot shows from the mid-chest up to the top of the head.
Birds eye view• Birds eye view is where your looking directly down at the object you are taking a photographic image of, you can see everything around the object too.
Over shoulder shot• An over shoulder shot is where you film over somebodys shoulder and you see what they see so your pretending to be them.
Shot reverse shot• Shot reverse shot (or shot/counter shot) is a film technique where one character is shown looking at another character (often off-screen), and then the other character is shown looking back at the first character. Since the characters are shown facing in opposite directions, the viewer assumes that they are looking at each other.
Low angle shot• A low angle shot is where your aiming up at the person/object that you are aiming at, it makes the object look bigger and sometimes in films it does it to actors who are playing a big roll maybe a evil person.
High angle shot• High angle shot is where you aim down at the person and take shots like that. It can show maybe that the actor or object is lower than them maybe in power? Or it can show that the person/object is smaller than the person taking the shot.
