Grade:5ºB
Eye Level: Shot taken with the camera approximately at human eye level, resulting in a neutral effect on the audience.
High Angle: Subject is photographed from above eye level. This can have the effect of making the subject seem vulnerable, weak (débil), or frightened (asustado).
Low Angle: Subject is photographed from below eye level. This can have the effect of making the subject look powerful, heroic, or dangerous. 
Bird’s-Eye View: A high-angle shot that’s taken from directly overhead (por encima de la cabeza) and from a distance. The shot gives the audience a wider view and is useful for showing direction and that the subject is moving. The shot is often taken from on a crane or helicopter.
Extreme wide shot
The view is so far from the subject that he isn't even visible. Often used as an establishing shot.
