Hi,

Can someone please help me out?

I know that you adjust the lights from wide shot to a medium shot and from medium shot to close up in order to make every shot look good.

I also know that sometimes when we go in closer then the lights may look more harsh.

Apart from that, can someone please give me some other examples on how the lights and the shadows may look different when we go from a wide shot to a medium shot and from a medium shot to close up?



Thanks

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Sam, you have been given enough examples. Now go shoot something and figure it out. As much info that has been given to you on this topic, you should be an expert by now.

So sorry. I saved the answers on my computer but I forgotten some of them and I couldn't find them on my computer for some reason, so I got a bit stressed out. That's why I asked again, just to remember the answers. Fortunately I found them, so I'm all good now. Sorry about that.
