pool girl thinking in the cayman islands: This photo uses negative space. I like to put the subject to the edge of the frame (alienate them, pushing them out of the frame, almost), to obvious effect. I generally shoot around the person (when doing street or public photography) to put them at ease .There is no good subject material in street photography in the cayman islands, so, as an alternative i go to the sea - where the people gather. The beach is my street -where a photographer is most likely to find dynamic interesting life, scenes - even moods. In this case: a kind of alienation. She is pushed to the edge of the photographic frame and facing a great deal of water ( pool water, ocean water) gives the photo narrative. This photo uses negative space.
