Negative Space

I first came across the term negative space in relation to scrapbooking.  Although mostly it was called white space which was a bit confusing because it didn't have to be white!

According to iphotography.com
Negative space is the area surrounding the main subject in a photograph which is left unoccupied. Put simply, it is the space around the object itself that helps define the positive space (or main focus). When used creatively together, negative and positive space can communicate the composition of your photograph.

Once we had agreed what negative space is, we chose it as our latest theme for Snapshot Girls.

The first few I took at the beach.



I think the sky makes and easy way to find negative space.




 The next two I'm not so sure about.  Do they fulfil the brief?



The backgrounds aren't particularly distracting, but I'm not totally sure they represent negative space.

What do you think?

Thanks for joining me today.
