The Importance of Printing Images in Today’s World
Goodmorning, from your Red Deer Newborn Photographer!
In the modern age, with so many platforms around, more and more people are switching to the digital world. With the introduction of Instagram, Facebook, and the like, photography has become restricted to the internet where images are uploaded and stored to be shared with the world. Digital photography is now more popular than ever, and the printing of images has become an obsolete idea and practice. However, many still believe in the power of printing images and having a tangible form of them around. In this article, we will discuss some of the reasons why you should consider having your next family/newborn/maternity shoot printed.
- Protection from Loss
We have become so habitual of practicing the use of smartphones and having everything in the digital form that we have stopped converting the beautiful memories into physical forms. However, too often we forget how easy it is to lose everything that you have stored on the hard drives or smartphones. By saving your precious moments in the digital form only, you are exposing yourself to the risk of losing everything in one second and never getting it back.
- Loss of Value
Since it has become so easy for us to capture different moments, our phones and computers are loaded with numerous photographs some of which are considered to be irrelevant. Because of the size of the data, we do not visit them often, and the photographs become buried in a pile. This should be considered to be fundamentally wrong as there is a lot of thought and care that is put into capturing different moments that are dear to us. Having them printed gives us the opportunity to give them the value and respect that they deserve.
- Real Presence
Imagine walking in to your house and seeing your family, your kids, your life displayed on a centre wall. Overtime you view that wall, you are filled with so much emotion - happiness. Remembering all those times, and sharing them with everyone who enters your home.
Printed photographs can be used in many ways. You can formulate an album full of memories, or you can put these photographs up inside your house. These serve as reminders to all those in the house of the beautiful moments shared and the pictures thus have a real presence. This is something that cannot be achieved by digital photographs. A visual reminder helps you create a feeling of warmth and love around the house.
While putting up pictures of beautiful sceneries and nature increase the attraction of the interior of your house, having your moments in the form of a collage on the walls gives a personalized look. Many people want their house to reflect their journey of life which can be best done by having personal recollections on the walls.
Technology has brought about major conveniences in our life and the way we carry out different activities throughout the day. However, it is important to keep those practices with us that reflect our values. Digital photography, while a phenomenal innovation, cannot achieve the same objectives as a tangible form of images which is why photography printing is not expected to lose its value in the near future.
