- The general shot: This shooting angle is used to capture the entire scene or location where you are. It provides an overview of the environment.
- The American shot: This camera angle is used to show a scene as a whole and to show the spatial relationships between the different elements of the scene.
- The medium shot: This camera angle is used to show the details of characters or objects. It allows you to highlight the expressions of characters or the details of objects.
- Close-up: This camera angle is used to show a particular detail of an object or character. It allows you to highlight the finest details of an image.
- Low angle: This camera angle is used to show a character or an object seen from below. It allows you to give an effect of power or superiority to the scene.
