      • Exposure
      • White balancing
      • Focus
terminology and effects
Terminology and Effects
  • Shots
  • Focus
  • Angles
  • Movement
long shot
Long Shot
  • Shot showing the entire body.
  • Establishes the scene (like skyline)
  • Show separation or distance between characters
close up or close shot
Close-up or Close Shot
  • The object or subject takes up 80% of the screen space.
  • Appears very large.
  • Also, “what is not in the picture”is important too.
medium shot
Medium Shot
  • Between a long and close-up.
  • Lacks much cinematic effect.
  • Most TV shows are filmed at this distance.
  • Can show more context and setting.
  • Different types of focus
    • Auto Focus
    • Manual Focus
    • Rack Focus
soft focus
Soft Focus
  • Creates a soft texture.
  • Slightly out of focus
  • Romantic movies or close-ups.
rack focus
Rack Focus
  • Certain objects in the shot are in focus.
  • Uses focus to draw viewer’s attention to particular details in your film.
deep focus
Deep Focus
  • Both objects in the foreground and the background are in focus.
  • Creates greater sense of reality.
  • Provides a lot of information in the scene.
  • Where the camera will be placed in relation to the subject.
  • Low, high, eye-level, and Dutch angle.
low angle
Low Angle
  • Creates the effect of making the subject more significant, dominating, powerful, and in control.
  • Important for creating stronger characters in your movies.
high angle
High Angle
  • Opposite effect of low angle
  • Camera is above the subject of the shot.
  • Subjects appear much weaker, smaller, and powerless.
eye level angle
Eye Level Angle
  • The usual approach in filmmaking.
  • The camera is at the same level as the subject of the shot.
  • “Neutral shot”
dutch angle
Dutch Angle
  • “All is Not Well” angle.
  • Camera is tilted slightly; image appears sideways within the frame.
  • Creates tension, evil or a dangerous situation.
camera movement
Camera Movement
  • Pan
  • Tilt
  • Zoom
  • Tracking or Dolly Shots
  • The camera moves across the horizontal axis.
  • Usually used to introduce setting.
  • Used from the point of view of characters as they take in their surroundings.

Sample Panning

  • Communicates distance, strength and size.
  • Camera is tilted along the vertical axis.
  • Looking up a mountain.

Sample Tilting

  • The camera moves in closer on a detail in a scene.
  • Directs the audience’s attention to a detail that is extremely important to the story

Sample Zoom-In

tracking or dolly shots
Tracking or Dolly shots
  • Whenever the camera actually moves, it is called a tracking or dolly shot.
  • Most cinematic effect because we follow the action instead of watch what passes by us.
  • “Use a chair with wheels.”
