Firstly, we identified a number of standard shot types that we can make use of such as wide, medium, and close up. We also considered the impact of our output aspect ratio setting for composition and highlighted some of the more commonly used ones.

We also demonstrated the impact that our choice of focal length setting will have on composition, noting that this will most likely vary greatly from shot to shot on a project, even when we are rendering inside the same space. And finally, we have set up a number of render views for ourselves, each employing a number of the basic rules of composition that...
