Rule of thirds

  1. 1. Rule of Thirds<br />Activity 3 Unit 2<br />-Dylan Power<br />
  2. 2. Rule of thirds<br />The rule of thirds states that the entirety of a photo be broken down into nice sections allowing for manipulation of these different sections to show different angles and perspectives on the shots. <br />
  3. 3. Bird’s eye view – this shot shows a scene from directly above. It is an Ariel view looking down on the scene.<br />
  4. 4. Chest shot – the setting in the background is still visible, the lower frame line cuts through the subject leaving just their chest and head.<br />
  5. 5. Close up – these shots are very intimate shots, these magnify the subject of the shot. They emphasize either the subject or object that you want to be deemed important.<br />
  6. 6. Establishing shot – this shot shows the subject in the surroundings, the viewer is able to see the full image of the subject with ample surroundings.<br />
  7. 7. Extreme close up – These are just a more extreme version of the close up which magnifies the image further, almost to the point which is surreal to the human eye.<br />
  8. 8. Extreme long shot – These can be up to ¼ KM long and is used to set the scene. It usually shows an outside of a building or a landscape.<br />
  9. 9. Eye level – This shot is positioned where the subject’s eyes are directly level with the camera lens.<br />
  10. 10. High angle level – the camera in this shot is elevated above the subjects head to emphasize action.<br />
  11. 11. Long shot – this shot shows the subject in its entirety from head to toe. The head is near the top of the frame and the feet near the bottom.<br />
  12. 12. Low angle level – this shot is pretty much the opposite of the high angle, showing the action from a lower level than the subject.<br />
  13. 13. Medium shot – this contains the subject from the waist or knee level up to the head, it is mainly used in a dialogue scene.<br />
  14. 14. Oblique shot – this is when the camera is tilted it shows an imbalance and is often thought to be instable. <br />
  15. 15. Over the shoulder – this shot shows what the subject or main person is looking at or interacting with. It is usually followed immediately by the reverse angle showing the main person looking.<br />
  16. 16. Over the shoulder – Opposite shot.<br />
  17. 17. Two shot – this shot showcases two people in the same scene and their interaction with each other.<br />
