30 Stunning iPhone Photos That Use Negative Space

Thank you for participating in our weekly iPhone photography contest. The contest theme this week was negative space and any photos that contained a significant amount of empty space could be submitted. We had 219 fantastic entries that used negative space in a meaningful way, and it was really difficult to choose just 30 winners. But here are my personal favorites this week.

How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Last week we featured a tutorial covering 10 tips for taking incredible low angle iPhone photos. The article illustrated how shooting from a low angle can result in more unique photos by showing your subject from an unusual viewpoint.

It also covered tips for using low angle compositions to simplify your backgrounds, fit more into the frame and get better silhouette and reflection photos.

iPhone Photography Low Angle 7

So the new contest theme is low angle photography, and any photos that have been taken from a low angle or looking directly up at your subject can be submitted.

To participate, simply tag your photos using IPSLow tag on EyeEm. You can tag photos in the description field when you upload them, or when you edit the description of a photo that has already been uploaded (tap the three dots icon to edit a photo).

All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Please upload photos to EyeEm in full resolution and without any watermarks to make sure I can feature them on the website. Please do not submit more than 10 photos each week.

The submission deadline is Sunday, October 5.

    Well done everyone, some great pictures.

    Great shots everyone!.. Congrats 🙂

  • Mike

    How I can submit a photo in this kind of contests in the future?

    • Hi Mike. You’ll need to download the EyeEm app from the App Store, then create an EyeEm profile for yourself. You can then upload photos to your profile and tag them with the relevant album name as described at the bottom of each contest post on this blog. Look forward to seeing your photos 🙂

    Some nice photos – but frankly? Most did not seem to represent the theme of the challenge.

    • I wouldn’t agree, they mostly use a lot of negative space. And generally the contest themes are there to stimulate and not limit the creativity of participants 🙂

    Beautiful work!
