This week focused on using nothing to focus on something, #PRTV_negativespace. Your entries this week were awesome, you guys nailed negative space to a T.  With Toby on a McKay Live trip there was no live show this week but Roy and Scott have picked your best use of negative space.

The weekly challenges are still going! You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s challenge #prtv_spring. Being that time of the year take a second to go outside and show us the best spring has to offer. Like always to enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Wednesday with the tags #prtv and #prtv_spring.

Scott’s Winner:

I love the framing and simplicity of this shot.
The clouds and interest and the bird has that negative space to fly into. Great shot!

Scott’s Honorable Mentions:

I picked this because it’s clever and shows a different interpretation of the original brief. Thinking outside of the box, very creative!

Negative film goes here…. #prtv #prtv_negativespace – space for the negative 🙂

I love the silhouette here, the negative space draws the attention to the subject. Not just another sunset but one with real interest. Great composition.

Roy’s Winner:

Can’t get any more minimalist than this for sure. Becky’s use of the bay completely eliminates the background and with a long shutter exposure smooths out the water. Which leaves focus on this nice dead tree in the water starting at a rule of thirds point.

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Using a shallow depth of field combined with an angle to isolate the grass allows negative space for the subject. This allows the child to become the main focal point as there is nothing to draw the eye away.

Then there’s getting low and letting the sky do the work. Christine has a good example of what a lot of new photographers have to learn. Your camera is not fixed at the height of a person and by shifting perspective this allows you to create that negative space yourself.

 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
