1  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

2  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

3  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

9  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.
