With the number of landscapes, selfies, and cappuccinos on social media platforms like Instagram and Tumblr, how come only a select few of them really grab your attention? The answer- camera angles.
1.The Bird’s Eye View:
This angle gives the viewer a top of the scene. It is often used to establish the setting.
2. High Angles:
A high angle looks down upon a subject. It often makes the subject seem vulnerable.
3. Low Angles:
Low angles do the opposite of high angles. They make the subject seem powerful and like a figure of authority.
4. The Dutch Angle:
This angle is a slightly tilted angle. It is used to demonstrate the confusion of the character.
5. Over the Shoulder:
The Over the Shoulder angle gives the viewer the same perspective as the subject. It is used to show the viewer what the subject is seeing.
