In June we focused on composing with negative space, and how powerful it can be to sometimes pull back as opposed to always filling the frame. In this article, we'll share 19 images utilizing the negative space technique and showcase how it can be used to bring out emotions and feelings.
Mostly focusing around people, including negative space for photographers for some reason tends to lead to the overall photo having some lingering emotion. It can often include despair, loneliness, abandonment, anger, rage and sorrow, although happiness and joyfulness often do appear, not nearly as prevalent though.
Enjoy this series of photos, and take note that most also follow the rule of thirds to help incorporate the negative space into the final image.
