Negative space – #CY365
Today’s CY365 prompt is “Negative Space.” I must admit I didn’t really know what negative space in photography was until I did a little research.
I discovered that negative space in a photograph:
– Is all the area that surrounds the photo’s main subject.
– helps define and emphasize the main subject.
– can help to balance the positive space… and more (read all of “Understanding and Using Negative Space in Photography”).
Our Victoria Day outing was to White Rock. It was a beautiful day with lots of people enjoying the beach. I took photos with the bit I learned about negative space in mind.
In the photo I picked, I think the negative space “helps define and emphasize the main subject.” I tried cropping out the rocks in the foreground, but that left the photo with a floaty groundless feeling, so I returned it to its original state.
