Camera Shot: High Angle
The high angle shot angles the camera down at the subject, making them appear less powerful, insignificant, or in some cases, trapped.
Notice how the angle against the brick wall makes 007 look like he’s in a tight spot.

Look at the difference!
The brick wall looks much more restrictive from the high angle in Bond’s case, but the straight-on angle with the man in the second picture makes the situation look much less futile.Slide6
In a low angle shot, the camera is positioned below eye level looking up at the subject. The angle provides a sense of power, dominance, or height.

Aerial View Shot (camera angle):
Definition: Any camera image or video shot from an aerial view, mostly shot by plane, helicopter, balloon, or maybe even shot while jumping out of a plane.Example: Jimmy is a passenger on a plane and wants to take pictures before his family and him land in Hawaii. He takes his camera out and takes a picture of the Pacific Ocean as the plane sours to its destination. Luckily the picture is had no borders from the window Jimmy had taken the picture from.
Misty Mountains shot from Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring :D, assumed to be taken by helicopter or airplane.
