The technology today has allowed cell phones to capture all these services we offer, but you will never get that photographic creativity and quality through a cell phone. The photographic eye to display an image to make it stand out and look it’s best, as well as knowledge of how to use manual camera functions is essential to capture pictures an video where each picture can tell a thousand words.
Quality is not expensive, it’s priceless!
