Learning Activity 5

I chose the following images to show the use of negative space in the following categories:

1.    Magazine, comic or newspaper


I chose to use this comic. I obtained the image from http://blurbhack.com/reviews/review.php?recordID=63&type=comic&code=maus and the negative space is represented by the stark use of red to highlight the image and the text

2.    Web


This is a screen shot of my personal blog. The large area of blue represents negative space that highlights the central text and images

3.    Architecture

I obtained this image from http://www.morguefile.com/archive . It illustrates that the sky can create negative space as the buildings are in stark contrast to the sky

4.    Natural Environment


This is a photograph that I took of a native black cockatoo on our property. The bird is highlighted by the sky (negative space) in the background

5.    Street Signage

This is another photograph downloaded from the free image site http://www.morguefile.com/archive. The grey areas around the bright yellow double lines act as negative space

6.    Vehicle Signage


Although technically “white space” the Mercedes logo would be in stark relief against any colour background that would act as negative space and the B.M.W. logo comes complete with it’s own negative space (the area of black that highlights the lettering). I found these logo’s here http://www.bmwblog.com/2012/08/06/july-2012-mercedes-luxury-u-s-sales-lead-on-bmw-narrows/

7.    Film


I found this image here http://www.psdgraphics.com/psd/old-film-roll-icon-psd/ and the white background to the yellow, black and white image acts as negative space to enhance the graphic

8.    Broadcast


This image is instantly recognisable and the black negative space is part of the reason why. It accentuates the white lettering and implied footlights. I got this image from here http://www.marketingshift.com/companies/entertainment/fox-broadcasting.cfm

9.    Automotive Design


Black on black…where the upper quadrant of the photo illustrates a very classy use of negative space to make me want to go out and buy this car RIGHT NOW! 😉 I got this image from here http://bmw-honda-picture.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/best-car-wallpaper.html

10.  Human Anatomy

In this photograph that I sourced from http://www.morguefile.com/archive there is a stark black background acting as negative space which is accented by the far left hand side of the guitar fretboard which is also very dark acting to highlight the guitarists fingers and the guitar strings
