Beginning of the journey..... by jackie8

Beginning of the journey.....

My push challenge this week from DonnaH is 'Negative Space or panning'. As I have tried panning a few times, I thought I'd have a go at negative space. I checked out Amy Spada's photos (uses the concept very well) and googled it too. Although I understand the concept that it is not necessarily the empty space in a photo, but more about the space round the subject, I found this incredibly hard to achieve today. This is nowhere near right, but I will keep trying!

@dhostick. Hi Donna..... My first attempt, I know it is not right and there is much room for improvement! I found this really difficult to execute, but I'll keep thinking/googling and working on it, I'm liking the challenge!
