Subjective camera

The camera is used in such a way as to suggest the point of view of a particular character.

  1. High- or low-angle shots indicate where she or he is looking from
  2. a panoramic or panning shot suggests she or he is surveying the scene
  3. tracking shot or a hand-held camera shot signifies the character on motion.

Subjective shots like these also implicate the spectator into the narrative in that she or he identifies with the point of view.
