6862 MarcoCiavolino Week 2020 30 NegativeSpace Post

Sixty Year Sorting Time

After moving from our family house I am now left with about 20 boxes of videos, photos, tapes, and prints. My goal over the next sixty days is to sort and scan and digitize all that I want to keep and the discard most of it. To do this I bought a light panel to help me sort slides and negatives.

Below is my archival station for the next couple of months including:  Epson Scanner (flat and negative/slide), Kodak Slide Scanner, Canon SELPHY printer for those so important photos, light tablet for sorting slides/negatives, and my laptop set to copy all scans to Google Drive for archival filing on my office server.

Our challenge this week, Negative Space, refers to the empty area surrounding the subject in a photograph. The subject itself is often referred to as the positive space and is the thing that we want the viewers to interact with. A large negative space creates strong minimalist photographs filled with drama. Even though the negative space may seem the dominant factor in the photograph, it is this strong contrast between positive and negative space that makes the subject stand out so boldly. You can take the rule of thirds in consideration when shooting with a lot of negative space, but your subject should always remain the main focus. Negative space often has interesting textures or consists of a solid color or color gradient but remember that it should be as clutter-free as possible. There is a reason why minimalist art nearly always has a lot of negative space.
