I understand the film "grammar" of shot types, framing, composition etc but don't understand what camera settings have to do with it.
This is one of the assessment criteria for a university project, Successful application of visual grammar through camera technique (including aperture, ISO, WB and shutter speed).
What sort of "visual grammar" applies to those camera settings? Focus, light, depth and so on are controllable but not really grammar. Maybe on dolly or steadicam shots, but that's outside of our basic (handheld/tripod) project.
Are the criteria just confusingly worded or am I missing something?
