Photography Lesson #1

In our first Photography lesson, we learnt about the different camera shots and angles. Then, we were asked to take different photos using those shots and angles.Here are the pictures of the different camera shots and angles that I took:

Extreme Wide Shot: The view is so far from the subject that the subject isnt even visible. This shot is usually used to show the subjects surroundings.

(taken at Food Street, Gawal-Mandi)

Wide Shot: This shotshows the entire object or human figure and is usually intended to place it in some relation to its surroundings.

(taken at The Walled City of Lahore)

Medium Shot: This shot shows some part of the subject in more detail whilst still giving an impression of the whole subject. This shot is usually captured from the waist up and is the most common shot.

(model: my brother)

Medium Long Shot: Also known as a three-quarters shot. It frames the whole subject from the knees up. An intermediate shot between the long shot and the medium shot.

(model: Shanzay Zulfiqar)

Close-Up: This is atype of shotwhich tightly frames a person or an object. A certain feature or part of the subject is focused upon, usually the face.

(model: Minaal Ahsan)

Medium Close-up: The medium close up is half way between a mid shot and a close up. This shot shows the face more clearly, without getting uncomfortably close.

(model: Umaima Baig)

Macro Shot: is an extreme close-up photo, usually of very small subjects.

Point-of-View Shot (P.O.V):is an angle whichrecords the scene from a particular players viewpoint.

(taken at Golden Triangle Suites, KL)

Low angle: is a shot from a camera angle positioned low on the vertical axis, anywhere below the line, looking up.

(model: Umaima Baig)

High angle:is a cinematic technique where the camera looks down on the subject from a high angle and the point of focus often gets swallowed up.

(model: Shanzay Zulfiqar)

Eye level: A fairly neutral shot; the camera is positioned as though it is a human actually observing a scene.

(model: Laiba Noor)

Canted angle: is a camera angle which is deliberately slanted to one side, sometimes used for dramatic effect.

(model: Umaima Baig)

Worms eye angle: is a view of the subject from below, as though the observer is a worm.

(model: Naimal Aslam)
