The mind frequently wants to complicate what should remain simple, with lengthy explanations to impress, to categorize, to control. Fight against it. Elegant beauty need not be explained. It simply is and the experienced eye will connect immediately to its presentation. Life should be the same way. Simplify to the essence. Brevity is the pathway of the soul and how the heart responds requires no lengthy descriptions or justifications. #elegance #simplicity #essence #light #form #expression #beauty #blackandwhitephotography

Sanctuary, whether it be a place of peace or through the act of creating, is more essential now than ever before in this, the age of hyper information, hyper entertainment and hyper expectations. We must remain grounded in the honesty of our connections to nature, faith and each other and sincere with our heart intentions that keep us connected to something far deeper than the falsity and briefness of mere appearances. We are more than flesh and blood and electronic personas, as is the energy of nature all around us. Stay true to what is deeper

In the ease of summer comes the parade of vivid moments and memories. Summer is the season rich in the gifts of experiences, like afternoon storms racing across the sky and landscapes ripe with life. Embrace it all for it departs too soon. #summer #beauty #life #stormsky #skullcreek #hiltonhead #sky #nature #sunflower #naturephotography #landscapephotography

I have two upcoming workshops, here in Dayton and in Hocking Hills State Park. The first will be a three hour program on digital editing and image file organization using Adobe Lightroom and various plug-ins. It will be held in the Mead Theater Room at Cox Arboretum MetroPark near Dayton, Ohio on Saturday, August 18th from 9AM to noon. The cost is $60 per person, payable the day of the workshop.

The second workshop I have scheduled is a one-and-a-half day program on fall nature and landscape photography in Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio. This program will be based at The Inn at Cedar Falls and will be a nice balance of both classroom instruction and field instruction. The cost per person is $150, also payable the day of the workshop.

Already both workshops are half-full. I limit my class sizes to 20 participants, so hurry and register soon if you are interested in attending either one of these great learning opportunities. My workshops are open to all levels of photographic experience and ability. To register, email me jim@jimcrotty.com or call 937-896-6311.

Addition information regarding both workshops available at https://jimcrotty.zenfolio.com/photography-workshops.

My wish is for us to go easier on ourselves and pull back back from the constant judgment, comparison and expectation that’s being accelerated at a dangerous pace over the recent years. Recognize it, see it for what it is and choose to fight against it by adapting the nature of awareness, observation and patience. There is always much more to every story than what we are initially told or see. Patience and compassion are the disciplines to take the conscious deeper. This requires strong faith too - to step out of old and easy patterns of youthful reaction and move ahead in careful contemplation. I am thankful for the art and tools of photography - combined with a love of nature - to have provided that wellspring of awareness so early on. Go easy, go light, let go and observe and the message from both within and from without will balance in amazing ways. #be #life #observe #aware #letgo #openeyes #openmind #light #energy #faith #beauty #grace #bestill #naturephotography #landscapephotography

Pretty cool! Both Sugarcreek MetroPark and Hocking Hills State Park are represented in the newly published 2018 Expressions book, showcasing the best nature photography submitted to the contest of NANPA - the North American Nature Photography Association, with images from all over the world and by such well known pros like Peter Lik. I’m honored and thankful to have my work considered and included. #published #naturephotography #nanpa #ohio #ohiophotographer #represent
