1. Camera Shots and Angles 2. Camera Shots and Angles 3. Close upIn a closeup shot,a certain feature or object takes up most of the frame.A close up of a person is often a close up of their face. Close-ups of a person will most of the time show their emotions much better than if a mid-shot or wide-shot was used.This is because you see much more detail that if the camera was further away. closeups also make the viewer focus on a certain point that they otherwise might have missed. For example in this scene emma stone has just notice spider man walk.we can see the like surprise and joy in her face but without the close up we wouldnt knowexactly how she is feeling. 4. Establishing shotAn establishing shot sets up the context of the scene.It is usually the first shot in a new scene.It is used to show the veiwer where the scene is taking place.most of the time it is a extreme wide shot or wide shot this allows the audience to see more of the enviroment. 5. Extreme Close-UpExtreme c| oseup is when a shot is so tight that only detail of one thing can be seen such as someones eye. This is used to see in much more detail what is going on.It allows us to see facial expressions and movement that might not seen in a shot further away. Extreme closeups can be used to add suspense to a scene.For example if there is big speech in a film,you would often have an extreme c| oseup on the speakers mouth to show the importance of what they are saying. 6. Medium Close-upA medium closeup is between a long shot and a close up.this shows quite a lot of detail but not as much as a close up would. This could be used for a scene when you need to see someone's facial expressions as well as their body language. 7. High-angle shotA high angle shot is usually when the camera is above the eyeline looking down. High angle shots are often used to make someone look powerless or give them a lower status.A high angle shot is used to do this because it looks down on the subject making them appear smaller and vulnerable. 8. Eye levelEye level is the camera angle we see the most.This is because it shows the subjects as we would see them in reallife. 9. Birds eye viewA bird's-eye view is a shot looking directly down onto something. This could be used to show the actors positioning in a scene.Bird's eye view shots could also be used as an establishing shot to give the audience a overall look at the setting. 10. Worms eye View A worm'seye view is a view of an object from below.its called a worms eye view because the camera is placed low looking up as if the observer was a worm. 11. Low angle shotLow angles shots are when the camera is placed low down looking up at a subject.This is often used to make the subject appear more powerful and give them a higher status. 12. SlantedSlanted camera angle is when the camera is purposely tilted to one side.This creates a dramatic effect and can often be used to give the feeling of confusion. 13. Medium ShotThis is when the camera is placed a medium distance awayfrom the subject. This is can be used when you need to get an idea ofwhat is going on in the whole scene notjust one detail of the scene. 14. Point of viewPoint of view is when you see what the character is looking at. This could be used to see someone's reaction to something or to see what they are looking at. 15. Camera Shots and Angles
