It’s getting to be busy season now that the weather is improving, and personal projects are a little harder to work on, but we managed to squeeze in a few minutes on a rainy afternoon this month to practice a concept for this month’s blog circle – negative space. No, I didn’t choose a cemetery to represent negative space, as in “bad” negative. As a matter of fact, I think our cemeteries in New Orleans are some of the most beautiful, peaceful places in the city. Negative space is a concept in photography where you place the subject in the photograph such that there is a lot of blank, or negative space surrounding it. The concept can be used in most any kind of photography, landscape, portraiture, etc. and can add a lot of interest to a body of work.
