Audience really matters when it comes to how you shoot an event. Is the audience in the same location as the cameras. If you’re trying to improve the sight lines, eliminating “bad seats,” you shoot mostly closer shots. If you’re shooting for an audience in a different location, like the web or a satellite campus, you need to mix in a wider variety of shots, including establishing shots, reaction shots, and others.
