Week 2 – Introduction to framing – Unit 1 & 3

For this I am going to show an understanding of different types of shots by producing primary images of each one. I will identify which is which by writing on a clapper board and taking a picture of it.

This is an example of a Long shot (LS), this has the whole subject in frame also showing his surroundings.

This is a Medium Long shot (MLS), this is similar to the LS but shows the subject from the knee up.

This is a Medium shot (MS), it has the subject from the waist up.

This is a Close up (CU), this shows the subject from the shoulder up and begins to fill the frame.

This is an Extreme close up (ECU), this fills the frame with the subjects eyes this could be used to shows reactions or emotions.

This is Rule of Thirds (ROT), this is used to make the image more appealing to the eye.

This is Depth of Field (DOF), this is used to draw focus onto the subject by blurring out the background.

This is Looking into Space, it creates the feeling that the subject is speaking to someone out of shot or is making his way somewhere.

 

I learnt a lot doing this, I had an understanding of each shot before we did this exercise however after doing this it is a lot better and I feel I could comfortably use these shot in my own projects.
