Moving the camera: Pulling back: Creating a Short Film: 05 Directing

A pull back is a camera move that moves the camera backwards, away from a subject. Pulling back tends to alienate and isolate subjects and characters, creating a feeling of loneliness and sadness. But this type of move can also be used for the opposite purpose, to create a sense of freedom and power. Directors can also use such camera moves to reveal things to the audience.
