Negative Space in Composition

“Negative Space” is a more advanced concept in composition, and is all about positioning your subject matter correctly. This photo of Big Ben is a great example of the effective use of this concept, using the right amount of space between the sign and the tower to give the photo depth. Negative space can also be used to give a sense of direction or movement, as with the related photo below called Geese in Flight. The empty space ahead of them gives direction to the photo and emphasizes the sense of flight of the geese. This tutorial will show you how to effectively use negative space in your photos.

You will learn how to:

Use the Rule of Thirds and headroom to help eliminate useless negative space.
Create balance in your photos by strategically using negative space.
