    • Eye Level
      A fairly neutral shot; the camera is positioned to be at the eye level of the subject.
    • High Angle
      Camera is placed above eye level, looking downward. This shot makes the object look smaller, confused, or more childlike.
    • Low Angle
      Camera is placed below eye level, looking upward. This shot makes the object look bigger, stronger, or more noble.
