Camera shots

     There are a number of standardized camera shots (or frames), the names of which are commonly derived from varying camera-subject distances.

     This camera shots are:
  • the long shot: plano general
  • the full shot: plano entero
  • the medium full shot (also known as American shot because of its frequent use in westerns. This was because a shot that started at knee level would reveal the weapon of a cowboy, usually holstered at his waist): Plano Americano
  • the medium shot: plano medio
  • the close-up: primer plano
  • the extreme close up: primerísimo primer plano o plano detalle
There are other variants, such as the medium close up (between medium and close up), etc.
