Production Exercise – Camera Shots Planning

I decided to go out today with the Sony HD SR10 to gain some more experience with it through photography. I looked at my previous blog post on different types of media shots and on the basis of getting a few different types of shots, I started to take some photographs. Unfortunately the weather was pretty bad, and it made some of the shots quite dark which I have edited slightly.

Extreme Wide Shots

– In reality, these would normally be considerably wider, but unfortunately I have just 1 lens!

After I had taken several photos, I decided to make my way back home. Unfortunately as I was making my way through a field, a cow decided it was going to chase me which can be seen below, in 2 basic wide shots.

Overall, the whole experience with using the camera was quite useful as it allowed me to experiment with different types of shots and get more of a feeling for the camera. Hopefully this experience will be useful when it comes to the filming process.
