Looking through my archive, I realize how infrequently I make good use of white space (I prefer using this term rather than ‘negative’ or ‘blank’ space). Hence I am on a mission to include this compositional effect in my photos more often. I could not have a better starter to this series than these photos taken exactly a year ago when mother nature provided all the white space I could want.
Fog wipes out but is not a blank, inert backdrop. Rather it reduces down to minimalism, accentuating and creating a dramtic sense of distance – I must try to infuse future fogless photos with this same dynamic!

These are beautiful atmospheric pics!
thank you – I loved the silence that came on too
Mm, yes, there is something ‘silent’ about black & white, isn’t there? And fog…
I tried putting a b&w filter on a foggy pic from Taraloka this summer – result!
Handsome minimal triptych. Love the mood
thank you John, they do fit as a triptych – different directions or aspects
Nice. Another technique I keep meaning to make more use of.
time and again the ‘subject’ takes all my attention
Beautiful images, Laura. I don’t think I’ve ever thought much about white or negative space. Interesting. Now that the thought is planted, it should be interesting to see what develops. Thank you. 🙂
I look forward to seeing what comes – not that your wonderful photography needs a re-design!
Love how those lines go seemingly into nowhere…
actually I thought of you when doing this post because you use white space so well especially with your food photos
These are beautiful compositions, Laura, I love the way the wires disappear into the fog.
felt like everything was being swallowed up by silence
