Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 114
Reacting to Amy’s Photo Challenge, I initially found myself a bit lost – Negative Space??? I do have a tendency to fill the frame, but nevertheless had a look through my back catalogue for images with negative space.
My understanding is that in an image with negative space, the ‘main subject’ occupies only a small fraction of the image area, while most of the background is filled up with ‘negative space’ – largely empty of detail. This negative space gives an impression of the relatively small size of the subject in relation to its environment.
Low and behold! I did find some images that could be considered exhibiting negative space – when I thought about it there were quite a few, though some of my negative spaces seem to include something additional – maybe even just a shade of a colour or the houses peeking through the mist in the above image.
So here’s some examples. Hope you think they fit the bill!
