Camera Extreme close-up - for moments of high drama. Close-up - for detail. Medium shot - to give more of an idea of what a character looks like and a similar sense of setting/action to that of a close up. Long shot - for an overview of location and/or action, or to include a crowd of people. Point of view - refers to narrative perspective rather than a conceptual 'viewpoint'.
Possible questions What and/or who can you see in the shot? Why is the shot composed like this? Where do you think the camera is? Why is the camera positioned in this way? When does the camera move from one shot to the next? What can you tell about the time/place/setting? How does the setting/lighting contribute to the atmosphere/meaning of the shot? What can you tell about the characters from how they are dressed? What impression is given of the characters by their costume/body language?
