Building a Zen Garden

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

Split Bow Arch

Split Bow Arch Big South Fork National Recreation Area

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.

Why is this image a top seller?

Indian Paintbrush Field

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.
