We use two shots consistently across our LIVE Sunday Service. The Cowboy Medium Shot and the Close Medium Shot. The Cowboy Medium Shot is our standard shot. It captures enough of the subject to include some surroundings and allows some emotion to be conveyed. It allows for a guitar in shot for the Worship Leaders and hand gestures in shot for the preacher. Stay on this shot for 2-3 minutes and transition at an appropriate pause. The Close Medium Shot is in between a Close Shot (from the shoulders up) and a Medium Shot (from the waist up). Basically, from the diaphragm up. The Close Medium Shot is great to convey more intense emotion. Stay on this shot for 30-60 seconds and transition at an appropriate pause.
