Lens artists photo Challenge #114: Negative Space

Amy has us looking at a Negative Space….I do like it for bringing our attention to the subject. Here, I took this image of Alliums against the light, darkening the background creating plenty of Negative Space:

Allium contre jour

Here, the darkness of the interior meant that the cobweb stood out in all that negative space:

And here, use of a wide aperture to create a blurred, bokeh laden background, a great way to create negative space, when the background is ‘too busy’:

Agapanthus unfurling

One of the reasons that I had just off-white blinds installed in my front room, as when the sun shines directly onto them, I can create images with plenty of negative space, as here:

Chinese lantern tulip

And here:  

and here is an example of Negative Space in the landscape:

  1. Oh these pictures are amazing. I think you could make a whole book with just tulips.

  2. Great choices, Sue. The cobweb is beautifully exposed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Great images! The Tulip is fantastic.

  4. Amy

    What a beautiful gallery, Sue. All are very beautiful. And special. I love the tulip especially, like a painting.
    Thank you for joining in. 🙂

  5. Beautiful examples Sue – especially loved the alliums and the tulip. On the latter the white background is perfection!

  6. All are beautiful examples. Well done.

  7. A lovely tulip, Sue. And I have a soft spot for the agapanthus too

  8. Love the allium and the agapanthus, Sue 🙂 :). And even that sad old tulip!

  9. These are lovely Sue, but the lantern tulip is stunning. So beautifully composed in the space, so perfect for the challenge.

  10. Your flower images really shine here. Beautiful work, Sue. I hope all’s well.
