Discussion : Camera Angles and Shots

  1. Define the meaning of aperture, shutter speed, ISO, and depth of field (DOF)
  2. Differentiate the purpose of camera angles and shots.


1.  Aperture: Aperture is a hole within a lens. It is the measurement or size of the opening in the lens which controls the amount of light. The larger  the aperture, the more lights gets in. Some lenses have fixed aperture, and some have variables apertures to control the amount of light.

2. Shutter Speed – the length of time a camera shutter is open to expose light into the camera sensor. Shutter speeds are typically measured in fractions of a second, when they are under a second. Slow shutter speeds allow more light into the camera sensor and are used for low-light and night photography, while fast shutter speeds help to freeze motion.

3. ISO – ISO can be defined as the level of sensitivity of our camera to available light. The lower the ISO number, the less sensitive it is to the light, while the higher of ISO number, it will increases the sensitivity of our camera. The component within your camera that can change sensitivity is called “image sensor” or simply “sensor”. It is the most important and most expensive part of a camera and it is responsible for gathering light and transforming it into an image

4. Depth – is the front-to-back zone of a photograph in which the image is razor sharp. As soon as an object (person, thing) falls out of this range, it begins to lose focus at an accelerating degree the farther out of the zone it falls; e.g. closer to the lens or deeper into the background. From what I understand this, it mean when camera lens focus to something area so , area that not focus will be blurred and for focus area will be more depth, sharp and clear.

Differentiate the purpose of camera angles and shots.

Camera Angles is affect how we perceive it. The more extreme the angle, the more symbolic and heavily-loaded the shot but Camera Shots is whereas camera shot direct who and what we see.
