Picture Composition for Film and Video
Behind each shot there lies an idea or purpose. When setting up a shot, the camera operator can employ a range of visual techniques that will clearly communicate the idea to an audience. Composition is the bedrock of the operator's craft, yet is seldom taught in training courses in the belief that it is an intuitive, personal skill.
Picture Composition for Film and Video's basic premise is that composition can be learned without restricting the scope for individual creativity and innovation.
Based on the author's own practical experience, the book deals with the methods available for resolving practical production questions such as:
* Does the shot composition accurately reflect the idea that initiated the shot?
* Will the content and method of presenting the subject accurately convey the idea?
The book also includes:
* diagrams and case studies for visual composition
* the relationship between human perception and visual images
* a section on virtual studios
If you are a practising camera operator, trainee camera operator, student or lecturer on a television or film production course, or simply a video enthusiast wishing to progress to a more professional standard you will find this book essential in enhancing the quality of your work.
*An electronic version of a printed book that can be read on a computer or handheld device designed specifically for this purpose.
