I am new to the world of cinematography but I love to try and create beautiful shots that i've seen in films but sometimes I think to myself "What is that shot called?" or "How do they do that?". So I thought that you all could help me with names of shots, what it does, an example (link), and if possible how the shot was made. I'll give an example.

Name: Reverse Tracking or Hitchcock Zoom
What it does : The characters remain the same size while the background changes perspective.
Example:
How shot is created: The camera operator is on a dolly being pulled backwards slowly as he is zooming in on the subject.

Name: Snorricam
What it does: The character remains in focus as the background becomes warped.
Example:
How shot is created: The camera is strapped to the actors body.

Please give as many examples as possible so that filmmakers can learn off of this information. I know that I could learn a lot from this myself. And please correct me if I am wrong about the information.

Thanks,
Daniel Peña
