Types of Shots
Extreme Long Shot
ELS is an very long shot to display the overall surrounding location or establish shot where the scene, action or dialogue takes place. The example of this shot is the extreme wide shot (bird eye view) of a forest, an ocean or a mountain in a wildlife documentary video.
Long Shot is similar to Extreme Long Shot with reduced frame area where the subject occupies 1/3 to ¾ height of the frame. This shot is also used to establish a situation in a scene or to display the location (where) of the subject (who – actor or object). It can be used as a master shot or as an opening in our video.
