But what is negative space? Negative space, by definition, is the empty space around the subject or focus of a photograph. I had a difficult time getting my head around it too. So did Miles, by the look of things!
Let's declutter our photography and try filling our viewfinders with negative space instead.
Here's another way of thinking about it for those who use Photoshop. If you can use one click of the magic-wand tool (which selects regions of a similar colour) to select most of the image, then you've got negative space going on!
You can use negative space to accentuate the beauty of a still life:

Join us tomorrow as we start our musing with our new muses — Cara, Christina, Gilly, Holly and Lindsey — on the theme of Two. On the 19th of August, the last day of the theme, we'll be hosting a linky party where you can add your own links and show us all how you have chosen to interpret "two". We'll be doing these link-ups every other Friday for each theme this year — we hope you'll come out and play!
