Understanding the types of shot you can take from your Bloom Mobiles

Keeping the flow of understanding and exploring your Bloom phone’s camera this post will explain various types of shots you can click.
The images can be captured in various forms that can be differentiated by the distance and focus on the object.

Extra wide shot or the extra-long shot:
The basic feature of this shot is that the object is not visible in the image. This is the base shot and usually taken to frame the
location of object. It can be a wide landscape where you will be taking images of your group

Very wide shot:
A shot little closer from the extra-long shot where the object is slightly visible but is still in the frame.

Wide shot:
This shot captures the object as a whole in the frame. The head of the object is closer to the top of the frame so as the feet of the

object which will be closer to the base of the frame. The background may not fit the frame but ensure that the object is not cropped

Mid shot:
The waist length of the object with the little of the background makes it a mid-shot. Usually taken when the focus on the legs is not
required. This shot is best suited when shooting for the documentary or news.

Medium close up:
A little closer than mid shot where the focus is till the chest length of the person. It should not be uncomfortably closer to the
object that it changes its expression.

Close up:
The frame will have the maximum part covered with face. This will show the clear expression of the face.

Extreme close up:
To capture the closet of the expression say the speaking eyes or the soft smile, the extreme close up shot is captured.

Cut in:
To show a specific gesture like hand movement or to focus on specific part like a wound.

Over the shoulder:
To show the conversation between the two objects the over the shoulder shot is captured. This will have the face of one person which is captured from the back of the second object.

Point of view shot:

To show what exactly been talked about. Like pointing a far off hut in the landscape, road view from the driver’s eyes.

Weather shot:
Taken to show the weather conditions. Not necessarily capturing the sky, but can show rain puddles, water logging, snow fall, morning
mist on the grass, wind flow over the trees.
