Photography - Camera Angles

Instructions: Write the correct answer for each question.

                                     This camera shot indicates a space equivalent to a person's head and their shoulders.
                                       This shot can frame one or two people standing up, that is their entire body, except the feet.
                   For this angle the camera is slanted to suggest imbalance, transition and instability. It is very popular in horror movies.
                                       This shot can frame one or two people standing up, this is their entire body, except the feet.
                         This shot will be able to take in an entire room or large group of people. In this shot you can see the entire set.
                       The camera shot, sometimes called a head shot, usually frames an object about the size of a human head, not including the shoulders.
                         A fairly neutral angle; the camera is positioned as though it is a human actually observing or looking directly at the scene.
               This movement is just like nodding your head up and down. The camera lens is moving up or down while keeping its horizontal axis constant.
               This camera movement involves changing the focal length of the lens to make the subject appear closer or farther way from the frame.
                             This shot includes space which would frame a person's head and torso. This shot can also encompass two people standing next to each other filmed from the waist up.
                                       This shot would frame only a part of a human face (an eye or the mouth), or perhaps a hand or foot. This is a common shot of intricate or important objects.
                                         This shot might encompass a picture of an entire house or, in fact, anything large. Here the camera actually frames the object to the back of the scene with all the surroundings and scenery visable.
                           Not so extreme as a Bird's eye view, this angle makes the object photographed seem smaller, and less significant or scary. The camera is elevated above the action to give a general overview.
                         This angle is used to increase height. The added height of the object may make it inspire fear and insecurity in the viewer, who is psychologically dominated by the figure on the screen.
                                     This shows a scene from directly overhead, a very unnatural and strange angle. Familiar objects from this angle might seem totally unrecognizable at first. This angle does, however put the audience in a godlike position, looking down on the action.
                 This movement is like dollying, but involves motion left of right. The Camera moves physically to the left while maintaining its perpendicular relationship. This movement could be used to stay with a pedestrian as she walks down the street.
