Types of shots

When learning about how to use the camera we were introduced to many types of shots that help create tension and uneasiness in a scene.

The Extreme Close Up shot in the title sequence of Se7en creates an abnormal suspenseful atmosphere as the image being zoomed on stands out and is abnormally close.

A high angle shot is used to show the vulnerability of a character and is very effective. A low angle shot is used to make someone or something look extremely powerful and superior.

These different camera angles are all helpful in giving us ideas of the types of shots we should use for our thriller. They are suitable and help create suspense and tension.
