Some people might disagree with that extremely tiny definition, and I understand why they would. Negative space can be used in MANY ways and can become anything within the frame of the photograph. I'll try to explain this with some of my photography (Nothing better than actual examples!) :
|This image uses a lot of negative space to|
support the themes: smoothness, creamy
delightful. The negative space is that creamy
looking space surrounding the flower.
The effect of blurring the background is termed
|The "Negative Space" in this image is|
used to portray the themes: desolate, not
of nature. By allowing more of the sky to
appear the viewer might notice how the smoke
from the factory starts to disappear into the
sky, what does that make you think?
|Negative space here also creates a sense|
of separation/loneliness and some may
interpret it differently (that's one beauties
of "Negative Space", it is free). In this image
the negative space represented by the light
grey (a lake) also takes form.***
