Using Space in Digital Photography Easily

Space is a very important part of photography. Unfortunately, many photographers don't understand it quite well and as a result, don't know how to use it properly. This article will show you how to use the space in your digital photography to take much better photos.

When you take photos, whether you know it or not, you are using space. There are two different types of space that are used.

Negative Space

Positive Space

What are the two? Look at a photo and identify the subject. The subject takes up a certain amount of space in the photo. This space is called positive space. Everything around this area is negative space.

Now, there are certain times when you should use a little bit of negative or a lot of negative. The difference results in different emotional reactions and effects in your photos.

Let's look at an example. There is a shot of a little boy sitting on a chair. Using lots of negative would make a shot with a lot of space surrounding the boy in the chair. The effects could be a lonely looking boy or a boy with freedom. It all depends on the angling and lighting. If there was little negative space, the boy would take up most of the entire frame and would look more intimate or trapped within the room.

As mentioned above, the angling and the lighting also play big parts. How you compose your shot also makes an effect on the way the space is.
