White space in photography is better know as "negative space" and that's the topic of this week's blog circle. An image with negative space is one created with lots of space around the subject so it's isolated.
Negative space doesn't have to be white (and usually isn't), but it will always be "empty space" with no distractions around the subject, and the subject doesn't usually take up a lot of the image.
Negative space doesn't have to be solid either. As long as there is no distraction from the subject it's fulfilled it's purpose.
The Pawsitivity fundraiser session images would be classified as having negative space. Here's an out-take from one of the sessions. (You can't help but smile, can you?!) :O)
