Take note kiddos: If you’re going to do foreshortening make sure all of the objects/ people in the scene are at the same angle and that the level of foreshortening/size of the characters works with the distance to the camera.

Okay so do you guys remember how in Arkham Knight whenever Scarecrow was monologuing the camera angles made it seem like we were looking up at him, even when the screen glitched? In film, that’s known as a low angle camera shot, and those are used to inspire fear and insecurity in the viewer
And idk about you all but I think that’s some smart work there???
Ever noticed how when we’re looking at Kara over Cat’s shoulder, it’s a higher angle? We’re looking ever so slightly down at Kara?
And when we’re looking at Cat over Kara’s shoulder, we’re looking ever so slightly up?
It matches their own perspectives, of course – Kara is slightly shorter than Cat in this scene, and so they’re looking up and down at each other respectively.
But what else? Well, Cat’s got all the power here. Kara’s barely hanging on, grasping at straws to try to explain away the connections between her and Supergirl that Cat is laying out for her. She, Kara, has zero control, zero power in this scene, and the high vs. low camera angles, intentional or purely practical as they may be, play into that dynamic.
(Also, goodness they both have fantastic shirts. I want one of each.)
