ESTABLISHING SHOT/ EXTREME WIDE SHOT
The view is so far from the subject that he isn't even visible. Often used as an
establishing shot. It is often used as the first shot within the scene.

This often works as an establishing shot, in which the audience is shown the
whole setting so they can orient themselves.
This allows us to see the whole of the subject and its immediate surroundings.
The Mid Shot is appropriate when the subject is speaking without too much
emotion or intense concentration.
The medium close up is half way between a mid shot and a close up. This shot
shows the face more clearly, without getting uncomfortably close.
In the close up shot, a certain feature or part of the subject takes up most of the
frame. A close up of a person usually means a close up of their face. A close
up emphasises the actors emotions.
EXTREME CLOSE UP
The Extreme Close Up gets right in and shows extreme detail. It is too close to
show general reactions or emotion except in very dramatic scenes.
