Examples of camara shots - Homework- Mrs Barton

This is an over the shoulder shot which is used to portray someone following someone else or to put the audience into the characters shoes.
This image is an extreme close up which is used to utilise the character or action closely.
This is a close up shot with a slight question of medium close up also which is used to help allow the audience to identify the characters emotions.
This image is known as the low angle shot. This type of image helps create a sense or power to the actor. It also shows a sense of power and control towards the character which also gives them status.
This image is known as the longshot. This image is used simply to help etsablish the location or the actor.
This is the high angle shot. This shot helps to create the idea of insignificance and vulnerability towards the audience. However this shot also positions the audience.
This image is known as the tilt. It is used in my circumstances to create confusion or disorientation towards the viewing audience. Sometimes it is also used to show a sense of nightmare.


  1. I particularly like the ECU of the hand here: it creates a real sense of foreboding or danger.

  2. Well done for practising a variety of camera angles, you still need to add 3 more shots, bird's eye, worm's eye and one showing the rule of thirds, see me if you are having problems.

  3. Dean you must put labels onto your blog by Wed 3 Oct. This is compulsory, ask either me or Mr Seal if you are encountering technical problems getting these labels onto your blog.

    1. I've already done the labels, it says i have.
