The creative challenge I had originally intended for this month was weather dependent, so after looking at the forecast for this weekend I’ve decided to swap it round with August’s and keep our finger’s crossed for better weather in a few weeks (because that weather last week wasn’t all the summer we are getting, right?)
For July your challenge is to capture negative space. In photography negative space is the area that surrounds the main subjects of your photos. Used well it can define and emphasise your subjects and create clear minimal looking photographs. The key to capturing negative space is to ignore the objects themselves and focus instead on the space around them. I love negative space photos, but I don’t always recognise the potential to photograph them, so it’s an area I need to work on.
