Negative space is the space around and between the subject(s) of an image.
The use of negative space is a key element of artistic composition, and when used correctly, can add a certain mystery to an image or give the viewer a sense of scale.
Telephoto lenses make it very easy for us to the fill the frame with our wildlife subjects, but in order to include more space, step back, use a wider lense, and include some negative space in your images.
Negative space is not negative.
Until next time.
