Framing (one shot) involves the rendering of the visual content of a series of frames as viewed from a single point of view, i.e. a fixed camera. In-frame is the term used by screenwriters to indicate the entry of someone or something into a framed shot.

Camera Shot Framing is used to express the way objects and people are positioned in the camera frame. For example, a shot frame can be used in dialogue scenes where only one person is shown even though there are two people.

 To Take Framing Shots;

- Firstly set up the scene to take pictures,

- Your subject should dominate the photo. Move closer or closer to him as needed.

- Eyes naturally pull an image from left to right. Make sure the main subject is placed to the left of the picture.

Three types of footage to frame a video;

Wide shot, Medium shot, and Close shot.

Wide Shot


This is the shot that captures the setting and context the subject is in. It could be in a room, outside in a park, in the woods, or on the beach.

Medium Shot

This is a very useful shot if you are shooting someone speaking in a room, as you might have many business video presentations, or if you are shooting 2 shots with two people talking to each other.
This is where the top of the frame is the top of the head and the bottom of the frame is in the middle of the body.



Close-ups are great for showing emotions and feelings and highlighting points. For example, a falling tear or a frown or a gesture; close-ups of these actions very quickly make sense to the viewer. This is a very useful tool for a video maker.
