In this project designed to invigorate your photography portfolio, Lindsay Adler encourages you to play with negative space in your photographs, creating an image in which the negative space is an essential element.

Description

Create an image in which the negative space is an essential element. Perhaps a vast expanse of sky communicates a story of loneliness or drama. Or perhaps the contrasting color of a background accentuates the shape and color of your subject. In this image, the negative space should either complement your subject or be a dominant element in your frame.

When you’re creating your image, think of a way for negative space to become an important element in your frame. Graphic designers regularly use negative space in logos and other designs—now it’s time to take “nothing” and turn it into something great for your composition.
