Hibiscus On the Wall: Photo A Day - Negative Space

Day 24 of "June Photo A Day Challenge" : Negative Space


Negative space is a type of photography in which you leave a lot of blank space in the photograph to show off the main subject. I did not know about it until I took up this June Photo A Day Challenge. Those interested in knowing more about it can check out this page. It has some good examples.

I've been trying my hand at this negative space photography all this month. Have already posted a few of my earlier attempts at it. Don't know how good or not they are, but you can have a look at them...



For today, I took a photograph of this hibiscus flower growing in my building. The wall behind the flower was a bit cracked, with the paint falling off at places. Inspired by some of the other photographs being shared on the FMS group on Facebook, I decided to experiment a little with Photoshop. Eventually, I just settled on increasing the cracked look of the wall, with the Craquelure filter in Photoshop.

So how does it look?


This is my 24th post for 2013 June Photo A Day Challenge.

Hey there ... saw your comment on my blog. Thank you for dropping by :)
Heat protector sprays can be found in any store these days...Use it on wet hair before blow drying. While straightening your hair though, let them dry first before using the iron. Let your hair dry then spray them over your hair before straightening...

I didn't receive the tab yet...neither the other prize...But I was a runner up in one contest before and so I know that they don't charge any sort of tax...

Thanks for sharing that link, Pooja. I'll look for it in the stores here. If none of them have it, then I can order online.

Blow drying: Wet hair
Straightening: Dry hair
Got it!

Thanks for coming all the way here to answer my questions! :D
Hope to see you around in the blogosphere now.

It looks like a layered hibiscus. Lovely attempt with the wall. :)

Thanks Jyothi! Yeah, there were a lot of petals. So it was probably a layered hibiscus. Don't know if there is another name for it.
