The most common technique for these is to expand the frame. This is a visual metaphor that says we are leaving the narrow focus of this story and turning our attention to a wider context. Panning across the landscape; the shot of the cowboys RidingIntoTheSunset; a crane shot that lifts the camera so that more and more of the city is revealed -- backing all the way out to framing the planet in space -- all these are hat-and-coat shots that use the same basic visual vocabulary.
