Week 8: Negative Space

Negative space is what we used to call white space in the newspaper layout world. It’s essentially breathing room for the subject, no competition from competing elements. This Lakewood Ranch sunset scene didn’t start out this way. It was a stand of trees, all of which were eliminated but one to achieve the negative space goal of this challenge. I don’t usually add or delete elements to my photos, in face, almost never, so I forget that that is an option sometimes. This was a good time to use that option, and I’m glad I did. One can keep that in mind when a scene isn’t perfect. you can take the scene home and make it perfect in post processing!
