20 Photos That Will Make You See Negative Space Differently
Over in our Master Lighting & Off-Camera Flash, we’ve started new weekly challenges to showcase the variety of talent of our photo communities. If you haven’t already joined our educational Facebook groups led by our SLR Lounge Educational Ambassadors, make sure you do so for a chance to get featured! Last week’s challenge was to submit their favorite photo featuring one of our all-time favorite compositional theories: Negative Space.
What is Negative Space Photography?
We discuss the many compositional theories in Photography 101 as a great stepping stone for a photographer to develop their artistic style and frame and photograph a scene in a unique way. Positive space is defined as the primary subject(s) in a photograph, while negative space is the space around and between the subject(s). Negative space, which can also be referred to as white space, is a common concept also used in art, design, architecture, and sculpture for hundreds of years.
