Digital PhotographyDeluca LalorWhat are the different types of camera angles?(Eye-Level) This is the most common view, being the real-world angle that we are all used to. It shows subjects as we would expect to see them in real life. It is a fairly neutral shot.(High Angle) A high angle shows the subject from above the camera is angled down towards the subject. This has the effect of diminishing the subject, making them appear less powerful, less significant or even submissive.(Low Angle) This shows the subject from below, giving them the impression of being more powerful or dominant.(Bird's Eye) The scene is shown from directly above. In drama it can be used to show the positions and motions of different characters and objects, enabling the viewer to see things the characters can't.(Slanted) This is where the camera is purposely tilted to one side so the horizon is on an angle. This creates an interesting and dramatic effect. Famous examples include Carol Reed's The Third Man, Orson Welles' Citizen Kane and the Batman series.Show and list 7 different camera shots.(Extreme Wide Shot)(Very Wide Shot)(Wide Shot)(Mild Shot)(Medium Close Up)(Close Up)(Extreme Close Up)

Why should you be clear about the subject?You should be clear about the subject so that you can be focused and that you can also concentrate on the topic.Why do you compose the entire frame, not just the subject?While concentrating on the subject of the photo it's easy to overlook other parts of the composition.Why use different camera angles?Many shots can be given added impact by simple changes in the camera view. The photo on the top right has quite a nice composition, but the effect is much more dramatic when the camera is rolled to the right. When the subject is a person, different angles can have a strong influence on how they are perceived. A photo looking down at a person can make them look diminished, or perhaps down-to-earth, informal, etc. A photo looking up at someone can make them look powerful or imposing.Why should you strive for balance?You should for balance because in a photograph for example, a mix of close and distant objects, a mix of light and dark. Poor balance is not usually good, for example, a photo with too much light and no contrast. Experiment and learn how to provide a pleasing balance.Why use lines when composing your composition?Lines can be used to direct the viewer's interest, emphasize parts of the frame, and generally create interesting effects.
