The camera angle marks the specific location at which a camera is placed to take a shot. A scene may be shot from several camera angles.

Psychological effects

Where the camera is placed in relation to the subject greatly affects the way the viewer perceives that subject. A high-angle shot makes the subject look small or weak while a low-angle shot makes the subject look powerful or threatening. A neutral shot has little to no psychological effect on the viewer.

A Dutch angle gives the viewer a feeling of a world out of balance or psychological unrest.
