Types of shot learnt about

After being introduced to how the camera works and its functions with the help of our college media specialist Marisa, the following lesson after we learnt the types of shots mostly used in thriller movies, to help create a closer understanding about the types of shot i and my group should/could include in my/our thriller opening.

Below are are the list of some of the shots we learnt about as a class:

CU (Close Up): Close shot of the full face.
MCU (Midium Close Up): A close up shot from the shoulders upwards, e.g capturing mainly the face face.

ECU (Extreme Close Up): A shot capturing onlt one particular object or person, a kind of a zoomed shot.
WS (Wide Shot): A Wide Shot, is a shot usually used to show a vast majority of scenery.
MS (Mid Shot): A shot from the waist upwards, capturing the body and face.

Two-Shot: When 2 people are in the same shot from the waist upwards.

OSS (Over-the-Shoulder-Shot): is a shot of someone or something taken over the shoulder of another person.

POV (Point of View Shot): A shot that shows what a character or a subject is looking at

Here are some different camera angles we learnt:
High Angle

Low Angle

Bird's-Eye View
Below are some of the camera movement we learnt in class:

Panning - the panning features involves the camera moving from side to side, this is used to show scenery. 

Tilting - titling is done by the camera man and its when they give a human effect and the camera is a person, thats what it can be used for. 

Tracking - when a track is used its placed down and the camera follows the the track and moves in a certain way the track is set. This is used to follow characters 

Below are some of the above camera shot (images).
