Learn to Create Emotion in your Videos with Camera Movement

By Anthony Thurston on May 17th 2013

I’ve got another great video for you aspiring filmmakers out there coming from the Slanted Lens. In this video Jay P. Morgan talks about how different camera angles and movements can affect the emotion that the viewer’s get from a shot. This is a great video for those of you looking to increase your production value and are looking to up your film-making game.

From a Photography standpoint a lot of these same principles apply to still photography, just without the physical movement. So like when he is talking about shooting from below or above the subject, take out the movement part and that emotion is still conveyed through a still image. So it is still a great video to watch if you are looking to improve on your perspective when shooting.
