« Back to Glossary Index

Parts of the frame or an area within the frame that are/is left blank or in which objects are missing in a way that is striking. By leaving part(s) of the frame empty, other areas of the screen can be emphasized, so in this respect, even negative space has a certain weight and importance in the composition of a frame. The opposite of negative space is positive space.
