Image Capturing Technique
Shotting is the process of making a picture or video. Included in the production process requires, Knowledge, and Skills in the implementation of shoting. One is to know the shot technique itself in the video. The following will be described some of the shot techniques commonly used in a video / movie.
Knowledge of this shooting technique is actually to determine how the shot will be made, as well as the impression it embodies. To distinguish between one shot and the other shot, this shooting technique is divided into two categories: viewed from the Image Taking Angle, and the Drawings Figure will be explained in the explanation below.
A. Image Taking Angle (Camera Angle)
1. Frog Eye Shooting technique with the height of the camera parallel to the base (base) curious with a base lower than the base. With this technique generated a very large place. Woeful distortion of perspective from the reduction of the size of the subject, resulting in an impression of arrogance, majesty, and robustness.
2. Low Angle Angle taking from the bottom of the object so that the impression of the object so enlarged.
3. Eye Level The angle of shooting is parallel to the object. Spectacle view of a person’s eyes standing or see the eyes of someone who has the same height with the object body. Often called normal shot.
4. Angle Height from the top of the object so the object becomes smaller. In addition, this shooting technique has a dramatic impression, namely the impression of dwarf.
5. Bird Eye Shooting technique is done with the camera above the height of the recorded object. The results of recording this technique is a very wide environment with other objects that appear below it is small.
6. Slanted This type of shot is a recording with no frontal angle from the front or front of the side, the launcher from the 45 ‘angle of the object, so the other objects join in the frame of record.
7. Over Shoulder This shot is a close-up version of a slanted shot that enables another object to be shot from the shoulder of the main object.
B. Image Size
Once viewed from the Angle Taking Figure aspect, next is the image size. The size of the image is of course with the purpose of shooting, as well as showing the level of emotion, situation, and condition of the image object. Some types of shooting techniques based on image size include:
1. Extreme Close Up (ECU) Shooting is very close again, until the skin pores are visible. Show details of an object clearly.
2. Big Close Up (BCU) Shooting from top of head to chin object. Highlights an object to cause a certain expression.
3. Close Up (CU) Shooting from the right top of the head to the bottom of the neck. To give a clear picture of the object.
4. Medium Close Up (MCU) The size of the image is head to chest. For one’s profile.
5. Medium Shot (MS) image size is limited to head to waist. Aim for a person’s viewing.
6. Full Shot (FS) Full shooting from head to toe. Shows the object as a whole.
7. Long Shot (LS) Shooting exceeds full shot. Shows an object against its background.
8. One Shot (1S) Shooting of an object. Showing a person within a frame.
9. Two Shot (2S) Shooting of two objects. Who is making love.
10. Two Shot (2S) Shooting of two objects. Usually shows a scene of two people talking.
