From doing this photo shoot I now understand that different camera angles, distances and framing can be extremely influential on the meaning of an image.

In this shoot I used many different camera angles including; extreme long shots which convey a feeling of isolation and loneliness, and close-ups will focus on a specific part of the image for example, the facial expression of the model connoting their frustration and anger.

To use different framing I position a model on the other side of a door with a window. This framing drew the attention to the model and kept the image simple yet meaningful.

I also used different shutter speeds and apertures to create different effects. For example I took a slow shutter speed photo of a clock, the image came out blurry and shaken which suggested a feeling of being rushed and chaotic.
