Negative Space | Weekly Photography Challenge

This weekly photo challenge is deigned to complement our free online photography basics classes. Each week we will set a different theme and your homework is to go out and photograph a collection of images related to that theme.


You can start this challenge whenever you like and do the different themes in any order you see fit. Think of these challenges as a photography workout. Don’t just do them once and not revisit them. If you do start these challenges as you begin our online basics classes then in a few months why not revisit older challenges to see how much better a photographer you have become.

Also try to think outside the box as much as possible. Photography is as much about creative interpretation as it is about technical prowess.


If at any time you’d like a critique of your images then please feel free to email us.

Negative space is used as a neutral or contrasting background to draw attention to the main subject. It can be a plain wall or the sky and technically in good design it it less than or equal to the positive space (the subject).


This week’s challenge is all about creating images where there is a greater amount of negative space. Try and stick to some of the rules of composition we have already looked at in our Photography Basics free online course especially The Rule of Thirds.
