Black & White Sunday: Negative Space

Negative Space – a space that is not there or the space that you don’t like?

It can be either, but speaking in terms of photography it is a space that isolates the subject of a photo, or complements it, or draws attention to it. To see more examples of negative space in photography please see my guest’s post.

 

This is my interpretation of negative space.

      • Yes – you’re right – the third is infrared. I really like your affirmation about the photos – it’s great to get such positive feedback. Thank you very much.

        • Your work deserves to be “studied”. I don’t have a chance to this often cause of my busy schedule and I am often sidetracked responding to bloggers that are really persistent in commenting. Did you capture it as infrared or you managed the look in the post processing?

          • I processed the image in Photoshop. Unfortunately I no longer have that program – it was on my old computer that crashed last year.

  3. Great picture, Paula. I always try to consider negative space in its own right, creating an own form or shape. And I must say I find the black (“background”) shape in your picture very pleasing. Good one!

      • I agree with that Paula. I did a top 5 on my bench challenge, but it does take a lot of time so I haven’t done that this time round. I always browse the comments anyway and visit blogs that way and I am sure others do the same. Hope you are keeping well🙂

  10. Hi P! I enjoyed this music – so relaxing and went well with the negative space. Sometimes in art class when the students learn about negative space in painting we connect it to moods and energy–and that flame photo of yours had a nice relaxing mood with the dark negative space -!☺️❤️
