Movie Camera Shots

In English class, we have started to make a film study. We were learning to take pictures of several angles and the meanings of them so what we experimented was, we went to our school roof and took pictures with different angles. We were in groups of 3s and 4s. My group was me and Dan as actor, George as cameraman and Idan as an director. We learned that we can read an image by looking at it and imagining what is going on.

We did different angles such as high, low angles, angles in the middle and others. I learned that angles show different perspectives such as if you were taking a picture of a person in a low angle, then it would show that person very proud and looking people down but a high angle would show someone hesitating or being bullied or has a small background.

These are some of our pictures we took at the roof.

 

Point of view shot with me and Dan.

 

In this picture, it shows me on the left and one of my group member Dan talking. The camera is focusing on us but if you see  more clearly, in the right bottom corner, you see a hand so its a sight from someone’s eye. This part was when my another group member George tried to punch Dan in the face. It was hilarious and it looked like a sight in a action video game. If you have played action video games before, your player’s hand will always be on the right holding the weapon.

 

Over the shoulder with me and Dan

This picture shows me talking to Dan but the angle would be facing Dan. I’m the person behind. It shows that the camera is focusing to Dan because it shows him in the middle of the picture and its facing him. It is similar to an interview. I’m the interviewer and Dan is the interviewee.

In conclusion, I think the effects on different type of film shot is the person or object your focusing on. That shows how important that thing is and would have an impact to it.

Roman, Greek gods

Today I would like to talk about the Roman and Greek gods that I’m interested and want to find more about.

The first god I’m interested is Neptune.

Neptune is a greek god and he is the god of sea. He is an olympian god. Neptunes powers are to control sea as you know but he posses the conventional attributes of an olympian god. He also posses superhuman strength and his olympian metabolism gives him greater than human endurance at all physical activities. Neptune can hold (press) 70 tons. Neptune can survive under water and he can communicate with all sea creatures and can move superhuman speed while he’s swimming. Neptune is the 2nd born son of Cronus.

 

My second interesting god is Zeus.

Zeus is also a Greek god. Zeus is the god of sky, weather. He is also an olympian god. Thousands of years ago, many people would believe in Zeus. Zeus is a Supreme ruler of Olympus. He is known by many titles such as The lord of the sky. Zeus is the 6th child born to Cronus and Rhea. Zeus is the youngest son of the Titans. Zeus is a very powerful god comparing to 2 gods combined. Zeus is the guardian of political order and peace. Zeus’ power is to be the ruler of Mount Olympus and all the land. He had everything he could imagine and more. He didn’t need anything else but, he didn’t need real magical power.

 

This is my final god I’m interested.

Hades is an ancient Greek god of the underworld. Hades was also the god of the hidden wealth of the earth, from the fertile soil with nourished the seed-grain, to the mined wealth of gold, silver and other metals. He is the rulers of the dead and he controls all the riches and wealth. He owns all the precious metals found in the earth’s core. He is also known to be the ruler of Hades, which is another name for the Underworld. Hades powers weren’t much known from people. But Hades was a strong and determine god. All the demons and monsters are controlled by him. Hades is the third son of Kronus. He was born on the mountain of Olympus.

In conclusion I think that I’ve learned different things about different gods and what they are. I think its really fun to learn these kinds of stuff and get education from it. I hope you learned something about it too.
