that makes sense but i see a lot of videos out there now that use a slider system. tons of shots are sliding all over the place. left to right, up to down, etc.

when and why do videographers choose to use that type of shot?

also, if you are videotaping someone using a computer. do you use a wide angle with the person and computer and background in focus or do you move back and zoom in to compress the shot so only computer screen is in focusing.

those are the things i am struggling understanding. which shot to choose and why.

i see lots of videos that are mostly shallow depth of field. only the person is in focus everything else out of focus. it is a great shot but the whole video looks like that. is that a good thing or bad thing? i don't know that is why i am asking this stuff.
