Today we are going to learn about camera shots. In each image, we'll look at a different way of shooting a picture.
Hi, I'm in a wide angle shot. We use this to show the scene - the big picture, if you like. You can barely see me - Because I'm not the most important part of the shot right now.
This is a Mid Shot - it's putting me in context - the background isn't as visible, and I'm more important now
This is an over the shoulder shot - It's like playing in a 3rd person shooter - it means you can see what the character can see.
