I have been reading about negative space, and positive space. The negative space in a photo, helps define the positive space. The negative space in this photo, is the clouds and the trees in the distance. The positive space is represented by the closer tree branches. A good way to accomplish this is by using a large F stop, so it will give a smaller focal point. I was just practicing on this one, and used F 8.0. The negative space is space that gives your eyes a place to rest on the positive space. It creates the ability for your focal point to stand out more. I took this on the way to my mailbox. It kind of gives the idea to me that I am up in the mountains, but it realy is just focused right above some houses in my neighborhood. Kind of cool. :) I wish the mountains were more defined, but maybe they would have been on a sunnier day. Another picture that I did that shows a lot of negative and posotive space is the one of the chocolate milk drop with the black background. The black background is the negative space, and the milkdrop is the main subject and the posotive space. Space is a great element of composition.
