Break The Couch Lab 2
TYPES OF SHOTS & BASIC TIPS
A camera shot is the amount of space that is seen in one shot or frame. Camera shots are used to demonstrate different aspects of a film’s setting, characters and themes. Using them the filmmaker can manipulate the audience’s field of view. As a result, camera shots are very important in shaping meaning in a film.
All videos are either public domain or our own shots.
