A lot of landscape photography tends to be maximal, using intricate collections of elements in the frame to create lush balances that convey the grandeur of scenes at least partially through their sheer overwhelming nature. Of course, that is not the only way to approach the craft, however. Embracing negative space can help provide more balance in your images. This great video tutorial features an experienced landscape photographer discussing negative space and how to apply it to photos.
Coming to you from Alister Benn of Expressive Photography, this insightful video tutorial discusses the use of negative space in landscape photography. I am a big fan of the use of negative space. We often think very additively in landscape photography, and this can lead to very complex photos. However, aiming for simpler, more direct images can often give your subject more impact, and one of the most straightforward ways to do this is to focus on creating negative space around your subject that gives it a little space to breathe. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Benn.
