Change in Size
With a single object a change in size from one frame to the next creates a sense of depth. Objects that grow appear to come closer and objects that shrink appear to move further away from us. This change in size of the objects within the scene adds visual interest and depth to the shots. This is one of the reasons why it’s preferable to stage compositions so that objects will grow in size within the frame instead of using profile shots (Figures 2.52 and 2.53).
Avoid profile shots and stage your compositions so that characters and moving objects will change size within the frame
