Using Negative Space In Photography

Negative Space can be a great tool that we can use in our photography to focus the viewers eye and create dynamic compositions. Sometimes a very minimal composition can really draw a viewer into the image and can be a great way to make an impact or statement with our work. Negative space can also be used very well for album designs as background images or for making other products for our clients like greeting cards where we need space to add text.

Here are a few examples of how negative space can be used in your photography to get our minds thinking about it. Also start shooting some images taking advantage of negative space, we will have another contest coming up that will have this as a theme.
