The camera angle or commonly called “camera placement” marks the specific location at which a camera is placed to take a shot. Different camera angles give a different viewing experience and can give a different emotion for the viewer. Camera angle informs the audience of their position to the story
Understanding how to take different shots: The height and position of the camcorder in relation to the subject has a big influence on how the final picture will look. The following will help you understand some of the basic camera angles
For the beginner, there are five basic camera position to use when you make your camera shots: 1.) Ground Level 2.) Waist 3.) Chest 4.) Shoulder 5.) Overhead
The camera points upwards, anywhere below the eye line looking up, usually making the subject or setting seem grand or threatening. Low Angle Shot – Subject looks powerful or threatening (child to adult view)
The camera is positioned as thought it is a human actually observing a scene. Camera is face on commonly called face-to- face view. Neutral Shot – Subject is equal in power to the veiwer
This shot is looking “down” on someone. The camera looks down, making the subject look vulnerable or insignificant. This angle gives the exact opposite feeling from a low angle. High angles make the object photographed seem smaller, and less significant. A camera is located above the eyeline.
1.) Over the shoulder Shot 2.) Establishing a Shot 3.) Point of View Shot
A shot of someone or something taken over the shoulder of another person. The back of the shoulder and head of this person is used to frame the image of what the camera is pointing toward. This type of shot is very common when two people characters are having a discussion.
A broad overview shot which helps the audience place the characters in their setting. This shot is often followed by the Over The Shoulder Shot
A shot which shows the viewer what the subject sees through his or her eyes- a view from the subjects perspective. It is usually edited in such a way that it is obvious who’s point of view it is.
