Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

In photography, film, and television, a standard shot size in which the background surroundings are slightly favoured over the foreground subject in terms of screen area. An MLS of a person would show their head and body above the knees so that much of the surrounding context would also be visible. In face-to-face interaction this mimics the proximity of the social zone. See also long-shot.
