Sometimes it isn’t necessary to fill the frame completely with the main subject. The use of “Dead Space” can have a dramatic affect in your image. In this example, the main subject is the couple on the cliff. By using a wide angle lens and including the dead space to the left of the frame, a more dramatic effect is achieved. Be careful to avoid distracting elements in the dead space. This can cause the viewer to be confused as to what the main subject is within the image.
