About Me - Marc R. Jacobs
Thank you for visiting my website!

So, a little about me… I am an avid photographer with many years of experience from film, to DSLR, mirrorless and mobile phones. My photography has primarily been about model, portrait and nature shooting. As mobile phones started getting better and better, I became curious. Can I actually use my phone to get professional quality photos. In the vast majority of cases I found that I. Keep in mind, the lack of aperture control on mobile phones, along with their tiny CCDs can cause some limitations depending upon the shot. But, by-and-large, with a few good apps and a little practice you can produce pictures you will be proud of.

A mobile phone will NOT replace a good DSLR or mirrorless camera, but remember, the camera you have with you is the best camera for the job. For most of us, it’s our mobile phone, so let’s make the most of it.
