Negative Space

June 7, 2010

(I shot this yoga themed shoot with model, Jessica Shahinian.)

A very important part of photography is not just to concentrate on the subject but to also concentrate on the space around the subject, which artist refer to as negative space.  The best way to find out how negative space affects your subject is to find a simple background and frame your subject up close and then gradually zoom out further and further until the subject is only a small part of the frame.  Find the ratio of negative space and positive space (the subject) that works well for you.
