About Rooftops

The Netherlands, Rotterdam – October 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #117 is ‘A photo Walk’.

Last week I had to kill some time in Rotterdam near the Central Station.
Just behind the roof of Central Station is Delftse Poort. Until 2009 the highest building in The Netherlands. The five highest buildings in The Netherlands are all in Rotterdam.

Tower

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #114 is ‘Negative Space’.

The term ‘negative space’ to me is confusion: technically it is the space around the main subject of a photo. It means ‘negative’ as opposed to ‘positive’ attention for the main subject. The word ‘negative’ as a noun brings back good old memories. Being older I actually worked and work with negatives (for the millennials: it has to do with film, the light sensitive stuff we used to put in a camera to get a photo on (in negative) that later could be printed (in positive).

So ‘negative space’ is about the focus a viewer of a photo is offered in a photo. If there is a lot to see around the subject, than that distracts from that subject. In other words: it is a creative tool a photographer can use.
