Photography is certainly a skill I've picked up through practice & sharing tips & tricks with more experienced photographers. It's great to be able to instinctively pick up a skill as if the universe was just waiting for me to catch up lol.
But now that I'm transitioning from doing to teaching others how to create amazing content, it's time to learn the proper terminology, because that's important. One thing I wanted to point out is the difference between white balance & negative space.
A lot of people have been taught or just assume that these things are the same (including myself at one point). However, they mean two different things and if you master both, you just got more keys to amazing images.
What is Negative Space?
Negative Space refers to the space between the objects or people being shot in relation to one another. Negative space does not necessarily need to be "white" background to be negative space. Take the images below as examples.
