  27. Rule of 180

  28. Lighting & Camera • -Avoid high contrast in high lighting situation (High light/Sun light) • -Avoid White background • -Subject has to be in front of camera • -If subject is against lighting increase aperture or make a shadow with the hand • -Switch from auto to manual exposure

  29. Camera Shots • -A wide shot contains landscape but gives the viewer a more specific idea of setting. A long shot may show the viewers the building where the action will take place. • -A medium shot contains the characters or a character from the waist up. From this shot, viewers can see the characters' faces more clearly as well as their interaction with other characters. This is also known as a social shot • -A close-up contains just one character's face. This enables viewers to understand the actor's emotions and also allows them to feel empathy for the character. This is also known as a personal shot. • -An extreme close-up contains one part of a character's face or other object. This technique is quite common in horror films, particularly the example above. This type of shot creates an intense mood and provides interaction between the audience and the viewer...

  30. Camera Angles • -A bird's eye angle is an angle that looks directly down upon a scene. This angle is often used as an establishing angle, along with an extreme long shot, to establish setting. • -A high angle a camera angle that looks down upon a subject. A character shot with a high angle will look vulnerable or small. These angles are often used to demonstrate to the audience a perspective of a particular character. The example above demonstrates to us the perspective or point of view of a vampire. As a viewer we can understand that the vampire feels powerful. • -An eye-level angle puts the audience on an equal footing with the character/s. This is the most commonly used angle in most films as it allows the viewers to feel comfortable with the characters. • -A low angle is a camera angle that looks up at a character. This is the opposite of a high angle and makes a character look more powerful. This can make the audience feel vulnerable and small by looking up at the character. This can help the responder feel empathy if they are viewing the frame from another character's point of view.

  31. Camera Movements • Composers of films also use camera movement to shape meaning. The following are some examples of common camera movements and how they can be used to shape meaning in films. • -A crane shot is often used by composers of films to signify the end of a film or scene. The effect is achieved by the camera being put on a crane that can move upwards • -A tracking shot and a dolly shot have the same effect. A tracking shot moves on tracks and a dolly shot is mounted on a trolley to achieve the effect in the example above. This camera movement is used in a number of ways but is most commonly used to explore a room such as a restaurant. By using a tracking shot or a dolly shot the composer of a film gives the viewer a detailed tour of a situation. It can also be used to follow a character. • -Panning is used to give the viewer a panoramic view of a set or setting (Horizontal movement of camera). This can be used to establish a scene • -Tilting Vertical movement of camera. • -Tilt up: Camera Moves Up • -Tilt Down: Camera Moves down
