of shot? How far away is the camera from the action?
defined by the amount of subject matter that's included within the frame.
They can be divided into six basic categories:
long shot--taken from a great distance, showing much of the
locale. If people are included in these shots, they usually appear
as mere specks.
shot--corresponds to the space between the audience and the
stage in a live theater. The long shots show the characters and some
of the locale.
with just enough space to contain the human body in full. The full
shot shows the character and a minimal amount of the locale.
shot--shows the human figure from the knees or waist up.
on a relatively small object and show very little if any locale.
on an unnaturally small portion of an object, giving that part great
detail and symbolic significance.
