Shot Ideas

For my documentary I decided to create a list of a variety of different shots to make sure I get what I need when filming and editing my documentary. I want to use lots of different shots in this documentary and creating this list was the best way I could get all my ideas down and not forget them. I have put the shots into different categories so I that I have a step by step process.
