Some television production techniques, if used properly, can actually cause the audience to “feel” something. The videographer can plant attitudes in the minds of viewers merely by the way a picture is framed. A program has the power to shape the viewers’ perception of someone or something without expressly verbalizing an opinion.
Shot An individual picture taken by a camera during the process of shooting program footage
Depth of Field The distance between the minimum object distance and the furthest point from the camera that a subject can be positioned while remaining in focus.
The Rule of Thirds A composition rule that divides the screen into thirds horizontally and vertically, like a tic tac toe board placed over the picture
Head Room the space from the top of a person’s head to the top of the screen this space should be kept to a minimum, unless something important is going to happen over the head of the person on the screen
