Reasons Why Photo Printing is Still Needed
Despite the advancement of soft print photography in our digital age, nothing can be more satisfying and beneficial to achieve a perfect work of art than having pictures printed in hard copies.
While a digitalized, soft copy of a photo can be edited digitally, yet, after editing and examining the results on the computer screen, some of the finer details are actually still not visible, but with a print copy, a photographer can take a better close attention to the imperfections as printed clearly, thus this approach makes a photographer a better editor as he/she can make the necessary corrections in his/her future photo shoots.
Following Photoshop techniques won’t make one a better photographer because the flaws are easily removed and remedied, but if you put your photos in hard prints in magnified form, then you have a more defining idea about the details that are not well taken in the pictures and this helps you to bear in mind on how to better use your camera the next time you will be capturing pictures.
There is something emotional an experience about looking at print pictures and we feel good about going over our old albums and as we leaf each page, panning over photos that seem to bring back to life memories of old, such experiences are tangible, that is why it becomes an emotional thing, while with digital pictures, it just doesn’t give the kind of intimate appreciation as compared to when you go over old albums looking at old photos that bring back life and memories.
Getting the utmost satisfaction of a photographer’s work is more felt when all his/her captive pictures are printed and put either in an album or exhibited for others to view and appreciate the hard work done to present an art form that is not easy to produce than by a simply uploading them on Instagram or Face Book, which after a few minutes of viewing by, perhaps, a million followers will be left forgotten in their mental archives. The ultimate satisfaction that a photographer gets from his/her pictures is when these are printed and sold to appreciative people who would love to hand them on their favourite walls at home. All these experiences make for an inspiring endeavour for the photographer to do more and experiment on his/her art form, creating more images on print that can continue to inspire more and more people.
Printed pictures are priceless treasures, old photos that when glimpsed once more bring back memories and stories that were captured in a camera and this revisiting is a precious life experience to anyone.
