Wide angle shot

A shot  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. It exaggerates the distance, depth or disparity between foreground and background planes.There are many wide angle shots in Wells’ Citizen Kane.
