dPS Weekly Photo Challenge – Negative Space

dPS Every week Photo Challenge – Undesirable Space

We’ve had a split at this previously, but it was a while ago and it’s a brand new day, so why not. What IS ‘negative space’ in digital photography? Very basically it’s using the open space in an picture to draw focus towards the subject – your eye pretty much can’t help but be drawn from the nothingness to the subject.

This week your problem comes from Sharon Williams a part of our Fb Group (you actually should join! ) …and after you join you should suggest a challenge (or suggest one in the comments under this post if you don’t do the Facebook thing)

Keep in mind! One photo per problem, make sure you tag it #dPSWeeklyChallenge and #dPSNegativeSpace if you’re posting on social media.

The particular white expanse of the desk with the simple but eye-catching coffee above is a great illustration, But it’s not one of my own, the photo below is one of mine (Drone, Mavic 2 Pro) and I think maybe I went a bit considerably, the surfer almost as well small to find… So what do you think? Anyway… gives me the chance to do better this week!
