It's Week #14: Negative Space

red-bird-blank-sign see the album

One of my favorite challenges in 52Frames, that always yields a really stunning album of photos. Negative space is simply the space around a subject, usually taking up more of the frame than the subject itself. It’s a great way of giving “space” to your subject, and creates a very interesting balance in composition.
Negative space is a great tool to have, because even when you aren’t composing for it, keeping it in mind will help you to pay attention to a clean background, and a distraction-free subject.
