This week for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge 114, Amy invited us to look at Negative Space in photography.
This is my first time explored negative space in photography. It made me interested to do a quick study about the subject. I only looked at three photography sites and the following is the basic idea.
Negative space is the area surrounding the main subject in a photograph. It allows us to create a dramatic image that attracts viewers to lead their eyes towards the smaller area of positive space.
Negative space should take up more of the image than the positive space. It has the effect of making us notice and inspect the main subject even more. It can be an unoccupied area.
The contrast in size makes us more curious about the main subject. The smaller the subject in the positive space is, the more noticeable it will become.
The negative space does not have to be an empty space. Things surrounding the subject are peripheral. They almost blend into the background, but they should never be the main subjects. They cause you to focus even more on the subject.
This week for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #98, Ann-Christine invited us to look at the delicate colors. I include two sets of photos here.
The first set:
These are the full moon photos from January 31, 2018. I captured the full moon when it rose above the trees and buildings before it was too high in the sky. The distance would be greater when the moon is high. By zooming, I captured different colors and shades of the moon.
The second set:
The Magic Fountain of Montjuïc’s (Font màgica de Montjuïc in Catalan) at Barcelona, Spain is a spectacular display of color, light, motion, music, and water acrobatics. A mixture of these elements together in just the right combinations is pure magic.
We were there in the summer of 2016 to celebrate our anniversary. The tour guide secured a spot for us to get a great view.
Here is a short video. I hope you don’t get a motion sickness because I moved the camera to adjust the height of the water!!
The moon looked like a Full Moon last night, July 7, 2017. This was one of the photos I took at 9:17 p.m. PDT last night. My research shows that the Full Moon is tonight, July 8, at 9:07 p.m. PDT. I’ll take a few photos tonight to make the comparison.
The Full Moon for July 2017 will reach its fullest on the morning on July 9th in the Unites States and Europe later in the afternoon.
“For many American Indian tribes, July’s Full Moon is commonly known as the Full Buck Moon because it’s the time of year the Buck Deer start to grow their new antlers. This month is also known as the Thunder Moon because of the large thunderhead clouds that form on the American plains in this summer month.”
