3rd place Photo Essay 2015 Mobile Photography Awards.

“In Irish mythology, Ériu was the goddess of ancient Ireland. I love shooting landscape in Ireland. The nuanced light combined with the etheric body of an ancient land almost guarantees interesting results. My series of images of this mysterious land are an attempt to capture the special ‘atmosphere’ of the topology rather than classic picture postcard photography. Hopefully I succeeded. All images shot with the LGG4 and edited exclusively with the Snapseed photo app.” – Sean Hayes.

Delighted to be among the honourable mentions in the black & white category of this year’s annual Mobile Photography Awards. Some great work here. What I like about B&W photography is that it strips back an image to its essentials. Texture, tonal contrast, shape, form and lighting are the building blocks of a photograph. Get all these attributes singing along in harmony and you could possibly end up with a great photo. B&W is the acid test of a photographer to create picture perfect images. Congrats to the winner, David Ingraham, and fellow runner-ups, who pass the test perfectly. A big shout-out to MPA founder (and talented mobile photographer in his own right), Daniel Berman, for his commitment and energy to make the MPA the success it has rightfully become since its inception in 2011. Mobile photography, and the very active talented community that make it so vibrant, is still in its infancy. Baby steps are turning into giant strides. Congrats to all involved.
