Low angle shot

When the camera is below the object being shown, and looks up at it. (visual)


The clip to the right shows the character using a low angle. The rabbit character walks into shot while the camera is looking up at him.

Typical effects

Low angle shots are often used to make things seem larger than they actually are. The sensation of looking up at them makes the audience feels like the character or object towers over them.
