Negative Space: Weekly Photography Challenge - Digital Photography School

Negative Space: Weekly Photography Challenge

This week we explored the idea of Negative Space in composing images so now it is time to put that into practice with our weekly photographic challenge.

NewImage

Your challenge is to take and share an image that uses Negative Space well.

NewImage

You can do this by taking a photo of any genre, portraits, macro, street or landscape… anything you like.

NewImage

If you’d like another tutorial on Negative Space check this one out too.

NewImage

Once you’ve taken your ‘2nd Point of Interest’ photos upload your best ones to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSNEGATIVE to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

NewImage

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks Secondary Point of Interest challenge – there were some great shots submitted.

    You need to edit the article to replace second point of interest with negative space (just after the 2-faces photo)... :)
