Camera Instructions

Camera Instructions:

  • Type of Camera and Lens: (Example: Use a wide-angle lens to ensure the full classroom is captured, emphasizing its breadth and ensuring no detail is left out.)

  • Camera Angle: (Example: The camera angle should be such that both the teacher's engagement and the students' attentiveness are highlighted.)

  • Lighting: (Example - Soft overhead lighting to illuminate the classroom evenly).

  • Accent lighting: on the teacher and the large electron display to emphasize their significance.


When crafting prompts for generating images, including details about the camera, lens, and view can significantly enhance the specificity and accuracy of the final image. Here's a brief overview of some popular types of cameras and lenses, which you can use in your prompts:

  1. DSLR (Digital Single-Lens Reflex): Known for their versatility and quality. Examples include the Canon EOS series (e.g., EOS 5D) and Nikon D series (e.g., Nikon D850).

  2. Mirrorless Cameras: Compact and lighter than DSLRs, with similar image quality. Examples include the Sony Alpha series (e.g., Sony Alpha a7) and Fujifilm X series (e.g., Fujifilm X-T4).

  3. Point-and-Shoot Cameras: Compact and user-friendly, suitable for casual photography. Examples include the Canon PowerShot series and Sony Cyber-shot series.

  4. Film Cameras: For traditional film photography, often praised for the quality and aesthetic of film. Examples include the Pentax K1000 and Nikon FM2.

  1. Standard Lenses: Typically around 50mm focal length, known for capturing images similar to what the human eye sees. Example: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8.

  2. Wide-Angle Lenses: Shorter focal lengths (less than 35mm), ideal for landscapes and architectural photography. Example: Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G.

  3. Telephoto Lenses: Longer focal lengths (greater than 70mm), suitable for sports and wildlife photography. Example: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L.

  4. Macro Lenses: For close-up photography, capturing small subjects at close ranges. Example: Sony FE 90mm f/2.8 Macro G OSS.

Camera Angles and Views:

  1. Bird's Eye View: A high angle looking directly down on the subject.

  2. Eye Level: The camera is positioned at the subject's eye level, creating a natural and straightforward view.

  3. Low Angle: The camera looks up at the subject, often conveying a sense of power or grandeur.

  4. Close-Up: Focuses closely on the subject or a part of the subject, capturing fine details.

  5. Wide Shot: Shows a broader view of the scene, setting the context.

When creating a prompt, you can specify these details to guide the generation of the image. For example, "a landscape photo taken with a Nikon D850 using a wide-angle lens, shot from a low angle". This level of specificity helps in creating an image that closely matches your vision.
