CAMERA Angles for hosts.
I don’t watch Bill Green that often because I’m not a big jewelry fan. However, the few times that I have watched, and tthis morning with Clever Carriage … I’ve notice that the camera always shoots him from his Left side. – Never full front or right side shots of him. Perhaps he prefers his left side.
Hi OHOHOH and all, I was just perusing through the forums and I just had to chime in and comment, because “you are so observant, and you’re absolutely correct”!
You are also the first viewer to comment on this in over 20 years that I have been on air at HSN. I personally favor working what is referred to as “Camera Left”. Which is to the left side facing the camera of Guests and Co-Hosts (which is my left side to viewers). It’s more a comfort thing than anything else and I really do not know why that is–at times I must work on the opposite side as a courtesy for only a few guests who also favor their left side and I have tried to overcome this but to no avial.
I have worked on air in most every category and lately a great deal of jewelry shows. But your observation is so spot on. I feel so much more comfortable presenting most everything to my right.
Call it a quirk–that’s me! I just wanted to share that with you–again, you are so observant!
Yes, I Have noticed because it looks purposeful and odd. The ‘front’ views are always from a good distance. I’ve noticed for months and it is always that way. – A striking difference from the shots of other hosts.
It might have appeared that way because most of the time he and Kim were standing at opposite sides of the beds. While they were talking to each other or looking at the bed, Bill’s left side was facing the camera and for Kim it was her right.
Bill did manage to get in some full frontals.
lol! it’s funny what people notice. maybe i’m not that observant. good catch! i like reading different views on what others notice.
You know what I was thinking….I can see right now office laser printers getting a whole lot more use than normal…lol!
OMG Anna is fantastic and she comes up with the MOST beautiful and clever things. The foil system was around years ago but not the way she does it. Of course she made it perfect! I can’t wait to try it!!!
