Camera Angle

 

in motion pictures, the angle at which an object is shot, either with a stationary or mobile camera. Camera angle is an important element in the pictorial-montage composition of a film. It can be used to show all sides of an action, event, or phenomenon. It can also be used to show a person’s facial expressions, gestures, and movements, to create montage metaphors, and to shoot a scene from a given character’s point of view.
