Grammar of the Shot, Bowen C.J., 2018.

   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 to create rich, multilayered visuals. Designed as an easy-to-use guide, Grammar of the Shot 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.

Choosing Your Frame.
The visual needs of your motion picture project can be guided by the script of your fictional narrative story (discussed later in this chapter), or are dictated by real-time documentary events, or driven by the content, style, and purpose of the show that you are producing. Knowing how you want to visually present your story can lead you to some of your first decisions regarding your visual plan: what camera and what lens will you use? In simple terms, these components work together to create your pictures. The lens, traditionally, gathers, focuses, and controls the amount of light entering the camera body. The camera body houses the light-sensitive "imager" (digital light sensor, emulsion film, etc.) that forms and records the image that you ultimately watch on a screen.

These two very important tools, the camera (referenced throughout this book) and the lens (primarily discussed in Chapter Three), work in tandem to reproduce a particular horizontal rectangle of reality that is out in front of the camera's position. This rectangle is only a small segment or cut-out window of the total sphere of the physical world around the camera. This cut-out has a defined and finite area and we call it the frame (Figure 1.1).
