Negative Space as a Compositional Tool in Wild Horse Photography

As nature photographers we’re usually scrambling to fill the frame with as much of the animal we’re shooting as possible. But Negative space… leaving the animal somewhat small in the frame… can be a powerful compositional tool. With a subject like the wild horses it’s important to include some environment in most of their photos. Without the environmental cues, afterall, does a wild horse really look that different than a domestic one? While I certainly enjoy a nice, close-up and intimate look at wildlife, I also enjoy these more environmental presentations. Take a look and see what you think.

Negative space can be a strong compositional tool. Without environmental elements how can a viewer tell a wild horse from a domestic one.

Big skies and open spaces just scream wild places. Never underestimate the power of negative space in designing a photograph.
