Negative Space Photography Meetup - Midland Old Railway Yard - 10.30 - 2 hours
Using Negative space is a powerful way to improve the composition of your photograph and catch the viewer’s attention. Negative space, put simply, is an empty area that surrounds the main subject in your photograph and simplifies the connection between the subject and the background.
Creating an eye catching image with negative space can be a challenge but also a very rewarding one. In this session we will explore how to look for points of view that will isolate the subject through the contrast with its surroundings.

I got what I came for and that is an understanding of how to get off auto and have confidence to take better photos. James was patient and clearly explained things, even when I asked a second time!

James has the patience of a saint. It was so nice to take photos under instruction of settings to go back and see what caused each change. A lot of information which can feel a little overwhelming at times. But James is great and goes with the flow and questions. We weren't made to feel incompetent. Beautiful location loved it and will return.
