Learning how to draw means learning to see. A good art lesson teaches us not only to create but to look at, think about and understand our world through art.

Photography 101: types of camera shots

One of the best ways to gain awareness of the different types of shots is to sort the photographs on your phone into sub- albums on your camera roll. Every time you take a photograph check to see which camera shot album it belongs in. Try using the types of shots you don't normally use to broaden your repertoire and then share them with the class.
Create a presentation using a few examples of each type of shot. Here is the shot list from my own phone camera roll:

Bird's Eye View

Worm's Eye View

Dutch Angle Tilt

Extreme Close Up

Close Up

Medium Close Up

Full Shot

Long Shot

Extreme Long Shot

One Point Perspective Shot

Over The Shoulder Shot

Reaction Shot

Two Shot

Reflection Shot
