An abstract from the sea….

Achieving a zen feeling in my photography has always been a goal of mine. Building a Zen garden, however that seemed a big stretch.
Not too long ago, we were looking over a recently completed corporate art installation when the client asked if I had any ideas for a space that he had that was not being utilized. He said that he hoped it would be a place where people could take a break and relax. I said “Maybe a Zen Garden”? He looked at me and instantly said, “Yes that would be great. Build one for me here.” I said “I have never built a Zen garden before”. He said “You are creative. You will figure it out”. I said “Ok”, feeling both scared and excited at the same time. After weeks of looking at rocks, gravel, fountains, researching and planning, this is what I came up with…..
The backdrop is a 15′ mural made from one of the images I created for the sumi-e collection at Byron Jorjorian Photography

Sunlight, Fog and Redwoods Trail….

One of our clients was looking through Byron’s images for a project they were working on and they really liked it so I thought that I would share it here. #redwoods #interiordesign #decor

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.

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.

My passion for photography has always been linked to discovery. Discovering new places, new ways of seeing and exploring paths of creative expression. Recently I have begun deeply exploring a more abstract nature image than I have pursued in the past. Here are a few examples of what I have been up  to.
