within a photograph


The negative space within a photograph is sheer bliss. The space can be calming and peaceful, allowing a place for the eyes to rest, while taking in the photo. A park bench of sorts, within the photo, for the admirer of photography. 

I found this very type of soulful space, nestled above, in between and below, my flowering tea pot and red cup.  The soulful feeling continued when I saw "View" by Red Kiwi Photography. The cotton candy sky and jeweled color water, welcomed me in, allowing me to admire it's beauty.  

Warmly,
Christina {soul aperture}

I'm so drawn to photographs with negative space. Absolutely love them. They are a bit mysterious!

Both are wonderful images -- so peaceful!

I so agree. The negative space is as important for photographers to consider as the objects within a composition. Wonderful examples!

I have been stalking your blog all weekend, devouring lots of great information. I LOVE your blog! Even though I am not a photographer and will probably never be, I love taking photos and would like to get better at it. Thank you for the great bits and pieces of info you have offered here. You have beautiful photos!
P.S. I decided I had better comment before you start worrying about all my visits. :)

What I love about the negative space is that it is filled with possibility...but you get that Ms. Christina, I know that!! ♥

Love your analogy of the negative space being like a 'park bench' within the photo!
