Learn by Doing Photography #18 – Negative Space in Photography
Yesterday my daughter and I went looking for negative space. We had hot chocolate at the cafe and wandered the streets downtown in search of negative space. Together we took lots of pictures this being my favorite. It has nothing to do with my attempt at negative space, but everything to do with this giggling, energetic full of life 6 year old I got to spend the day with. I too will practice more this week on negative space, although the idea of taking a picture with negative space sounds easy, as with everything you need to practice and look for it.
Empty space that allows your subjects to breath a little bit.
The absence of content does not mean the absence of interest.
Negative space is used to bring your eye to the subject.
Negative space, in art, is the space around and between the subject.
