A few words on Negative Space. In photography, the positive space is the area occupied by the main subject, and the negative space is the area around it. The negative space draws attention to the subject of the photograph. It needn't be empty, but it does need to be unobtrusive. It can be a textured backdrop, fabric, a wall, shadows or even small supporting props, or items just out of focus. It's important to understand negative space, as the client may need to add text to your image. In this photograph, the aim was to make the Haagen-Dazs ice cream the focal point. Interest has been added with the rust tray, backdrop and the beautiful copper and brass serving bowl. The colour scheme is analogous. Do you like this minimal scene?
