Composition is about telling a story
composition also means arranging. We arrange the objects in a way in which we can best tell the story that we want to show to the viewer.
We had an exercise to do
Take one shot with three compositions
and also a square, 16:9 and 2:35
my square didn’t really work as it should have. After I cropped it I would loose details from the picture, I couldn’t have everything because I didn’t take a wider shot.
What we learned in notes after the exercise about angles
Camera angles means camera language
Tilt is in the horizontal direction
We have three dimensions to work with vertical, horizontal and tilt.
Field of view is another piece of language, how much we’re going to put in.
