  1. CLOSE-UP SHOT:
    A close range of distance between the camera and the subject.
  2. DISSOVLE:
    A transition between two shots, where one shot fades away and simultaneously another shot fades in
  3. LEVEL CAMERA ANGLE:
    A camera angle which is even with the subject; it may be used as a neutral shot.
  4. LONG SHOT:
    A long range of distance between the camera and the subject, often providing a broader range of the setting
  5. FADE
    A transition from a shot to black where the image gradually becomes darker is a Fade Out; or from black where the image gradually becomes brighter is a Fade In.
  6. HIGH CAMERA ANGLE:
    A camera angle which looks down on its subject making it look small, weak or unimportant
  7. JUMP CUT:
    A rapid, jerky transition from one frame to the next, either disrupting the flow of time or movement within a scene or making an abrupt transition from one scene to another.
  8. LOW CAMERA ANGLE:
    A camera angle which looks up at its subject; it makes the subject seem important and powerful.
  9. PAN:
    A steady, sweeping movement from one point in a scene to another.
  10. POV (point of view shot):
    shot which is understood to be seen from the point of view of a character within the scene.
  11. ZOOM:
  12. Use of the camera lens to move closely towards the subject.
  13. Rule of thirds
    Rule of thirds divides the frame into thirds both horizontally and vertically. The points where the vertical and horizontal lines cross are aesthetically pleasing spots to place subjects or to have perspective lines converge. It is usually best to avoid placing horizon lines exactly in the middle of a frame, but to place the horizon either above or below center, approximately one-third or two-thirds up the height of the frame
  14. Over-the-shoulder shot:
    : a close-up of a character as seen over-the-shoulder of another person in the foreground
  15. REACTION SHOT
    1.: A shot of someone looking off screen. 2.: A reaction shot can also be a shot of someone in a conversation where they are not given a line of dialogue but are just listening to the other person speak.
  16. TILT:
    Using a camera on a tripod, the camera moves up or down to follow the action.
