Question 1 Telephoto- lens of long focal length. Enlarges distant planes and makes them seem close to the foreground planes. (Everyone is the same size). Wide-angle- lens of short focal length. Distorts straight lines near edges of the frame and by exaggerating the distance between foreground and background planes. (People are different sizes). Deep-Focus- everything is sharp. Shallow-Focus – front sharp, back blurry. Dolly- camera on wheels that moves through space. (front moves by very quickly while background moves by very slowly). Cranes – camera on arm like devise that moves up and down. Pans – camera that only moves right to left but stays in place. Tilt - camera that moves up and down but stays in place. High-key – very bright, light coming from everywhere. Low-key – lighting is hard. Creates sharper, darker shadows. Soft lighting –Not many shadows Hard lighting – crisp shadows. Saturated colors – (purity/vibrance of color) high saturated colors have intense color, low saturated appears greyer. (hue, saturation, and value). Brown is desaturated. Shot Scales- MLS knees up. MCU chest up. CU head, hands, feet, or a small object. Aspect Ratio- Ratio of frame width to frame height. Academy ratio is 1:33-1 Anamorphic is 2:35-1. looks narrow, squeezed and distorted. Shot/reverse shot – must establish the 180 degree line then we can show first one end point of the line, then the other. (characters don’t have to look at one another).

Eyeline match – similar to a point of view shot. Characters must appear to be looking at each other. Match-on-action – a motion starts in one shot and continues in another shot. Establishing shot – (shows where everyone is and what they are doing). It might be a shot at the beginning of a scene indicating where the remainder of the scene takes place. Or an establishing shot might just be a long shot of a room that shows all the characters
