Negative Space

Negative space is used to create eye movement across the image.  Doing this creates more interest.  In animal photography, I often create the negative space towards the area the animal is looking.  It stimulates the viewer to wonder where the animal is running or what he may be looking at.

In the case of a portrait it simply elicits more appeal.
