Week 11 of 52 – Negative Space

This week our assignment was to not just think about our subject, but to also consider the area surrounding the subject; the negative space. I did two different shoots for this task.

I started out with Mav on this awesome blanket a friend gave us.

And then it turned in to just getting cute detail shots of this guy!

But this is what I ended up with. I had awesome window light but this perfect moment was better than the light. This was my submission to Clickin Moms.

I had awesome window light, but this candid was more important to me than the light. This was shot using my Nikon D700 with a 35mm 1.4 lens. My settings were ISO 1600, f/4.0, 1/60 sec. You can clearly see who the subjects are. The blanket is pretty busy, but a good point our Project 52 leader made is that negative space does not have to be void of subject matter. If you would like a better understanding of negative space, check out this article.

Then on Monday I had a strollercize class. I had a couple shots in mind, so I brought my camera and played around a little bit after the class.

Mav not so impressed by the end of class.
