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

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.

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.

The verdict is in and evidence-based design clearly indicates that artwork that features medium distance nature landscapes, actually reduces blood pressure and speeds the healing process. Also, less pain medicine is required to keep patients comfortable. This type of imagery has the added benefit of having a calming effect on patients, employees and visitors.

Here are a few of our top selling Spring images, that fills the prescription:

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.

We are currently printing and coating 52 canvas prints for another project that we are working on. We print them with a mixed lighting profile (so they will look good under various lighting conditions). Then Triple UV coat them for extra protection and to make sure that the color won’t fade.

More than 20 years ago I stepped onto Couchville Cedar Barrens and saw the Tennessee Coneflower for the first time. Geoff Roach, who at that time worked for The Tennessee Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, led me on the short hike. I was awestruck!! There were hundreds of these endangered flowers growing in one location!! I photographed them everyday for nearly a month. in 1999 one of the images was chosen as the cover of the Bell South Telephone book for the state. Now the flower has been delisted. There are a lot fewer flowers now than there used to be.
I still return at least once a year to photograph the glades and the flowers. Here is the phone book cover and a few images that I made on the 8th of June 2016.
