CAMERA ANGLE AND PSYCOLOGICAL EFFECTWhere the camera is placed in relation to the subject, it affects the way the viewer perceives the subject.High angle shot: when the camera is located high (often above head height)Low angle shot: when the camera is positioned low (often a knee height), looking up. It makes the subject look powerful or threatening.Bird-eye shot: refers to a shot looking directly down) on the subject. It can be used to emphasise the smallness or insignificance of the subjects.Horizontal plain: when your scene is set horizontally, everything seems peaceful.

This slide shows 3 types of Portraits: Avoid direct sunlight, use the shade Use window light Use indirect light

Basic Camera Shot types:FS: Full shot (or LS: Long shot o WS: Wide shot): shows subject in locationMS: Medium shot: Shows what subject is doingCU: Close-up: shows a particular part of the subjectMCU: Medium close up: shows subject in more detail

ECU: Extremely Close-up: shows a detail of the subject

Basic Camera Shot types:

Extreme Wide Shots (EWS) act to establish the area.

Wide Shots (WS) o Full shot (FS) or Long shot (LS) show the entire person or area. Theyre great for establishing the scene and allow for good action of the characters. Sometimes this is known as the long shot.

Medium Shots (MS) frame the subject from the waste up. This is the most common shot and allows for hand gestures and motion.

Medium Close Ups (MCU) shots show the subject in more detail and are often framed from just below the shoulders to the top of the head.

Close Ups (CU) show a particular part of your subject. For people this usually means the shot frames just the head!

Extreme Close Ups (ECU) are much tighter close-up shots in which you get detail greater than the human eye might be able to normally perceive. An example of this shot might be of the mouth and eyes together

CAPTURING EPHEMERALee Jeffries

Ephemeral: Efmer, passatger, que dura un diaEphemera: records

RAE:efmero, ra

Del gr. bizant. ephmeros 'de un da'.

1. adj. Pasajero, de corta duracin.

2. adj. Que tiene la duracin de un solo da.

3. f. cachipolla. = Insecto de unos dos centmetros de largo, de color ceniciento, con manchas oscuras en las alas y tres cerdas en la parte posterior del cuerpo, que habita en las orillas del agua y apenas vive un da.

CAPTURING EPHEMERALee Jeffries lives in Manchester in the United Kingdom. Close to the professional football circle, this artist starts to photograph sporting events. A chance meeting with a young homeless girl in the streets of London changes his artistic approach forever. Lee Jeffries recalls that, initially, he had stolen a photo from this young homeless girl huddled in a sleeping bag. The photographer knew that the young girl had noticed him but his first reaction was to leave. He says that something made him stay and go and discuss with the homeless girl. His perception about the homeless completely changes. They become the subject of his art. The models in his photographs are homeless people that he has met in Europe and in the United States: Situations arose, and I made an effort to learn to get to know each of the subjects before asking their permission to do their portrait. From then onwards, his photographs portray his convictions and his compassion to the world.

huddled: apinyada / ajuntada

CAPTURING EPHIMERAPierre Gonnord

CAPTURING EPHEMERAPierre Gonnord captures the marginalized and invisible members of society in elegant portraits. He has traveled to cities and villages in France and Spain, the American South, and Japan, finding his subjects among heavily tattooed Japanese yakuza, urban homeless youth, the blind, farmers, and coal miners. His lush, large-scale prints, centered upon the dramatically lit faces of his subjects, whose heads emerge from inky-black backgrounds, recall portraits by Rembrandt, Velzquez, and, at times, El Greco. Before he begins to shoot, Gonnord gets to know his sitters, the better to photograph them in all their dignity, complexity, and beauty. Sometimes hostile, almost always fragile, and very often wounded behind the opacity of their masks, they represent social realities and sometimes another concept of beauty, he says.

lush: rica, exhuberant
