wide-angle shot

wide-angle shot
  a shot (often abbreviated WS) taken with a lens that is able to take in a wider field or range of view (to capture more of the scene's elements or objects) than a regular or normal lens; a wide-angle shot exaggerates the distance, depth or disparity between foreground and background planes, thereby creating greater depth-of-field and keeping all objects in focus and in perspective; an extreme or ultra-wide-angle lens giving a 180 degree view is called a 'fish-eye' lens
  Example: In Citizen Kane (1941), the famous wide-angle scene in Mrs. Kane's boardinghouse that kept all objects in the shot in sharp focus
