The Rewards of Photo Printing
While it’s true that there are pros and cons to digitalized photos, in our digital age, almost all photographs are into soft copies, yet, photography enthusiasts, especially those who take meticulous evaluation of their work, would rather prefer to have their captured photos printed.
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.
On the part of the photographer, there is ultimate satisfaction to seeing all his/her hard work displayed in an album or on a quality print copy and having these also exhibited for other to appreciate your work of art than just simply storing all those works of art in th computer archives. The real test of art being well appreciated is when your print pictures are bought and hang on the walls of people’s homes. It is definitely a well of triumph emotions on the part of the photographer, thus encouraging him/her to produce more images on print and experiment on his/her art form.
Finally, the best benefit that can really be derived from printed pictures is revisiting these old photos and reviving stories that go with the them which can bring a smile on people’s faces or a teary-eyed experience, whatever it is, the rediscovering process cannot succeed that well had these pictures not done in print.
