We live in a continuously growing digital era that is constrained by the size and latest resolution of our displays; an age in which the emergence of social media as a popular medium to share photography, the increment of digital portfolios and digital dispersal have given prints a feel of being old school, even though the first known wirelessly transmitted photo from a phone was shared only about 18 year ago. Some may believe that the craft of printing photography is vanishing. So why should you print your Photos?
Printed photographs are tangible and real. Unlike digital devices each print has a unique feel and identity. Holding and appreciating your prints, brings memories from that instant. It allows you to appreciate and love the finished craft, contemplate its beauty, whether it is on a wall, a desk, or next to you every morning. The best part is when you find them and slowly turn over to the next one to find that special inked dedication that makes it so much more personal and something to treasure.
Prints are personal, for your inner circle’s satisfaction not for the social media masses. It is a mighty thing when you print an image that you are delighted with, hold it and embrace it simply for what it is. Holding that individual piece and getting a feel for it, you can get a better sense of your identity as an artist or developing artist.
