Grammar of the shot

Bowen, Christopher J

The newly-revised and updated fourth edition of 'Grammar of the Shot' teaches readers the principles behind successful visual communication in motion media through shot composition, screen direction, depth cues, lighting, camera movement, and shooting for editing. Many general practices are suggested that should help create rich, multi-layered visuals. Designed as an easy-to-use reference, the book presents each topic succinctly with clear photographs and diagrams illustrating key concepts, practical exercises and quiz questions, and is a staple of any filmmaker's library
