Pregnant belly makes cameo appearance
Add this to the list of the challenges of framing shots for 16:9 — pregnant bellies.
WPVI-TV sports anchor Jamie Apody was seated at the anchor desk of the Philadelphia ABC affiliate during a two shot meant for anchor Jim Gardner and meteorologist Adam Joseph.
The shot was framed a bit too wide and Apody’s belly showed up in the lower left of the screen. She started laughing during Gardner and Joseph’s crosstalk, having spotted the bad framing.
You have to give the camera operator some props though — he or she did manage to adjust the shot gracefully to crop out the belly.
