Did you use to catch and release tadpoles from ponds when you were a kid? If you did, Jens Heidler of Another Perspective has a video that will make your childhood close to you again. And I mean, really close. In his latest video, he shows us tadpoles in 100:1 magnification, revealing even the tiniest details we’ve never seen before.
If you spend time in nature, I bet you have been stung by ants more than once. And have you ever wondered how do these little critters inject their venom under our skin? Thanks to scientist Adrian Smith, you can now see it from up close. He has filmed the world’s first close-up, super slow motion video of how ants’ stingers work. And while it teaches you something new, it’s also very captivating to watch.
Whether it’s a big budget action movie or a regular location photo shoot, the wide shot can be used to add some drama and interest to your scene. Environment provides context. The exact opposite of the wide shot is the extreme close-up, which focuses in on the small details while still providing some of the same effects.
In these two videos, put together by Jacob T. Swinney, we see a study on both the wide shots and extreme close-ups of Hollywood director David Fincher.
