Three common camera angles:
When operating a camera it's good to know what angles can accommodate your vision or look for a particular scene. One good shot would be the close up angle, which is usually used to put attention on the person speaking and their dialog. Another good shot is the mid angle shot; this shot is more of a distance away from the subject and captures the upper body. The mid angle shot usually gives more feeling to what the subject is doing. The last common shot is the wide angle, this shot captures the objects and other things that the director wants in the frame. The wide angle usually lets the viewers know what is going on in the shot. Although all serve a purpose, it's up to the director on what camera angle is recommended for the shot.
