I couldn’t resist sharing another powerful way to use a tilt/shift lens. To create this image of Split Bow Arch at Big South Fork National Recreation area I used a 24mm tilt/shift lens.
I used the shift function to take three images one each, shifted right center and left, respectively. Once back on the computer I stitched them together with the panorama tool in photoshop.
If you are interested in learning more about composition, using lenses creatively, and making prints please consider joining us for the Big South Fork Fall Photography Workshop, October 26-29th, 2017 that I will be leading with Ron Rice.

Field of Indian Paintbrush and Black-eyed Susan flowers in the Texas Hill Country

Why is this image a top seller?

I sold this image as a fine art print 3 times in the past week. It has been a good seller ever since I took it in 2016, selling dozens of times in the year since I made the image.
This week I began wondering what has made this image so popular?
Looking back I can remember very distinctly when I made the image and a bit of the thought process that went into it.

It was just a few hours after sunrise and I was standing on the side of a hill that was covered with flowers boulders and cactus. I was overwhelmed by the layers of color and I wanted to portray that in an almost abstract way. I could also see the potential for a hint of an S curve composition. There was a large tree to the left and a jumble of boulders to the right that limited opportunities for a horizontal image. So I decided to position myself where I could get as much of the feeling of the layers of color and the sense of sweeping curves while not introducing the distractions present on either side into the image. I used my trusty 90mm tilt/shift lens to keep everything sharp front to back. The creative process itself brings joy and a sense of flow and fulfillment to me. When that process can also bring joy into the lives of the viewers that is the ultimate outcome to me.

When people first see this abstract looking image they often think that the colors were manipulated in photoshop. Far from it. In fact, getting these kind of results depends on learning to see the colors as your camera sees them. In this example, the color of the leaves is influenced by the blue tones of light in the shade and the sky. The water is reflecting the color of the fall foliage still on the trees. If you use auto white balance settings on your camera this color would be “balanced” out of the image. I used daylight white balance when I created this image which captured the tones as I wanted .

I created this image at Big South Fork NRA which is the site of a workshop this Fall, October 26-29th, 2017 that I will be leading with Ron Rice. For more details click HERE.

Come explore the mysterious Everglades with Byron Jorjorian and Ron Rice. The Everglades is “the” classic swamp location of the US and offers some of the most concentrated and diverse wildlife photographic possibilities, as well as endless opportunities for moody landscapes and abstracts in the country.

Following our dinner and orientation on Thursday evening, we will spend two and a half days in the field, winding up on Sunday at 1 pm. You will be shooting morning and evening in the field, and then during the day when the light is not at its best, we will have photo exercises and training on composition, lighting and technique. These exercises and field classes are designed to improve your artistic and technical mastery no matter what your skill level.

Everglades Workshop Bonus!  Byron’s Workflow Basics:  Learn how Byron’s Image Management and backup system works from the field and back to the office. You will also learn how he has incorporated Lightroom into this workflow. Armed with this knowledge you can incorporate all or parts of the system into your own image management workflow. Learn how Byron manages his catalog of over 400,000 photographs.

In the interest of giving our workshop clients our full attention while in the field, we do not shoot for our own personal use.

(Food and accommodations not included, but we will provide you with hotel recommendations when you sign up.)
