How To Understand The Fundamentals Of Camera Angles

Camera angles are a creative tool we filmmakers use to help drive our story forward and bring depth to the present scene. 

When choosing which angles to use, it’s important we understand their various uses and the symbolism they bring to a scene. So how exactly do we figure this out? 

YouTube channel, Studio Binder, uploaded a video that explains the different camera angles and how to use them. The video is informative for any filmmaker, new and experienced, as it’s a great reminder when shooting a film. 

Give the video a watch for some inspiration as to what camera angles to use for your next project.
