Camera angles

Eye-Level

This is the most common view, being the real-world angle that we are all used to. It shows subjects as we would expect to see them in real life. It is a fairly neutral shot.

High Angle

A high angle shows the subject from above, i.e. the camera is angled down towards the subject. This has the effect of diminishing the subject, making them appear less powerful, less significant or even submissive.

Low Angle

This shows the subject from below, giving them the impression of being more powerful or dominant.

Bird's Eye

The scene is shown from directly above. This is a completely different and somewhat unnatural point of view which can be used for dramatic effect or for showing a different spatial perspective.
In drama it can be used to show the positions and motions of different characters and objects, enabling the viewer to see things the characters can't.
The bird's-eye view is also very useful in sports, documentaries, etc

Elements of Design

Value: is the lightness or darkness of a colour. Value is also called Tone
Texture: is the surface quality of a shape - rough, smooth, soft hard glossy etc. Texture can be physical (tactile) or visual.
Size: is simply the relationship of the area occupied by one shape to that of another.
Direction:all lines have direction - Horizontal, Vertical or Oblique. Horizontal suggests calmness, stability and tranquillity. Vertical gives a feeling of balance, formality and alertness. Oblique suggests movement and action
Shape: is a self contained defined area of geometric or organic form. A positive shape in a painting automatically creates a negative shape
Line: can be considered in two ways. The linear marks made with a pen or brush or the edge created when two shapes meet

Bobby Orr's The Goal
external image orr.jpg This is one of if not the most famous photograph in all of hockey history featuring Bobby Orr. The qualities i like in this photo are the lighting, the rule of thirds and the colour. the lighting is rather good for a hockey arena (The Boston Gardens) in the 1970's. i like how the Bobby is almost sticking out of the picture. the rule of thirds is a big part of why this image is great even though the artist took this photo on complete fluk it is still in the lines. Although the origional photo was taken in colour the artist altered it to be a bettter quality image.
Ovechkin Breaking stick
external image 201101292038742892627-p2.jpeg
This photo was taken at the 2010 NHL All Star game during the hardest slapshot compatition where he clocked in at an 89 MPH high. the photo has excelent all around qualities such as colour, focus and and clarity. it also demonstrates the rule of thirds because ove's face is on the right line which is also the point your eye is drawn to first. it also demonstrates high contrasted colour with a crispness with a close up zoom.
Sidney Crosby
external image crosby.bmpsidney crosby is one of the best players to ever play the game of hockey. this photo demonstrates an unusual camera angle located above the players head. this provides a unique image which still applies to the rule of thirds. i would considder this a medium zoom level because it is zoomed just enough to be in focus but no so much thaty you cannot see sid's shaddow.
The Colosseum
external image italy-travel-381-2.jpgThe colossem is one of the oldest buildings in the world going back to roman times. This image is a far zoomed image which allows the lines of the image to fall on the lines of thirds. It also shows texture in the top left square of the image where the roof line starts to drop. this image was shot at a direct angle which incorperates the people well.
Del Piero Greatest Goal
external image 6789955443_c2b8df08aa.jpgthis image is of Alessandro Del Piero scoring his what i think his most memorable goal in the history of seria A soccer. although it may be a bit blurry and out of focus this image is epic. when i think of amazing photos i automaticly think of this one because of its un usually high and angled position.
Also Del Piero's foot and the ball are on the first line of thirds which cates your eye even in this quick split second image it shows what true talent photographers truly posess.
