The purpose of this blog is to show the right and wrong ways of setting up shots while interviewing. The top picture on left hand side shows what your shot should not look like when interviewing someone. Also notice how you are able to see the cord from the microphone.
On the right hand side, notice how little space you space above the head, how tight the shot is, and the alignment of is body is towards the right. A combination of these three make a great shot of your interviewee while creating a well put to together shot when lower-thirds are added. If you ever watch news channels or interviews notice how tight (close) the shot is. Most close shots are from the chest up, but it could depend on what angle you are conducting you are filming from.
From this post you should have an idea of what a proper close up or tight shot should look like. Before you leave this post spot out what catches your eye in both shots, and how it should be corrected.
Post your comment below regarding what can be done to improve both shots!
