In are lesson in framing skills we learnt about all of the framing angles and different types of shots and then we were sent out to test the different frames and angles here are the results.


This is known  as the ES or the establishing shot it is used to show the setting and what its like and to generate the general atmosphere.



This is known as the EC or extreme close up it is used to show emotions In peoples faces or to emphasise an object.


This is known as the LS or long shot it is used to get a full grip of what the character looks like.


This is known as the CU or close up this so you can see a detailed close up on the characters face so you can see his emotions or just what he looks like.
