Lens-Artists #114: Negative Space

This week’s photo challenge from Amy asks us to show negative space. The negative space in a photo is the space surrounding the main subject in an image. This negative space can add a sense of emptiness, calm, peacefulness, or isolation.

In the photo above, the little dachshund is the main subject of this image. Our eye is drawn beyond the dog where we see he is running towards a flock of brown pelicans on a deserted beach.

In the next two photos, I felt the isolation of some very remote areas in the United States.

I like to use negative space to surround the main subject when taking closeup photos in the garden.
