This week, Jude’s Photo Challenge invites us to use empty – negative – space as part of a photo.
I thought that Becky’s Perspective Squares Challenge provided a perfect tool to consider the value of this space. Is it empty – as in vacant? Or does it tell us more about what’s going on?
So I’m going to show you each shot twice. Once with the negative space I originally included, and then again, cropped to a square illustrating only the subject. Which do you prefer, in each case?
This is a whistlestop tour to the bird reserve at Slimbridge, to the Farne Islands, and for the last two sets of shots, to Dallowgill, a lonely, beautiful moor in Nidderdale, only a few miles from home. Click on the images to bring them up full size
