Negative Space


Hey, you! Give me some {negative} space! Giving your subjects negative space makes it clear to your viewer on what to focus. The simplest way is to surround the subject with an uncluttered background like sea, sand, snow, sky, grass, or a plain wall.

On this day, our seasonal golf course was officially closed and the rules were relaxed. My husband could go out in jeans and his loveable little caddie could come along. Surrounded by that swath of perfect green turf, it’s easy to know where to focus and understand the story.

Whether a pet, a person, or a special find, choose a simple background today for your loveable subject. ‘Cause who doesn’t need someone or something to love?
