Five-point method

Five-point method

For this project, I was capturing the image of someone getting soft-serve ice cream. I did this by first shooting a full body image of my subject at an angle from behind, so my audience could get a bigger picture of what she was doing. I then shot a medium shot closer to her body to capture her serving the ice cream. My next angle was a close up of her face to capture her emotions while doing so. This was following by a close up on her hands and the cone that was being served to portray what was going on. My last shot was from an angle behind her shoulder to share my subjects point of view with my audience. I did all of these angles by keeping the 180-degree rule in mind and stayed on the same side of the action.
