    Default Is there any way I can omit the words "camera" frequently appering in this sentence?

    Here is what I have written in a draft:

    "By using different camera shots, camera angles or camera movements, the director suggests what kind of positions the characters are in, the personalities they have, or how important they are."

    I feel a bit stupid repeating "camera" again and again! But I don't know the proper way to avoid redundancy! Please help me create a less annoying sentence. Thanks.
