Aspiring filmmakers and cinematographers need to have a deep understanding of the different types of shots used in movies. Each type of shot serves a specific purpose and can evoke different emotions and reactions from the audience. By mastering the use of different shots, filmmakers can create a specific visual language that enhances the storytelling and makes their films more engaging.
Learning about the different types of shots used in movies is an essential part of becoming a skilled filmmaker or cinematographer, but is also incredible important for stunt and action actors too - the more you understand each shot the better you understand what it's capturing and how you can best act and react within the frame.
Each type of shot serves a specific purpose and can be used to create a specific effect or emotion in a scene. By understanding the nuances of each shot type and how to use them effectively, filmmakers can create powerful and memorable films that resonate with their audiences.
Note: This list isn't exhaustive and there are different terms used in different regions or productions, but that should be plenty to get you started and also help you see how directors and cinematographers use shots to help tell their story or immerse the audience in the details of a scene or moment
