PICTURES AS A LEGACY
I was recently asked a simple question which made me think.
Do you still print photos?
At that point I realized the last time I printed a picture was fourteen years ago.
With technology everything has changed and evolved over time but that doesn’t meant printed pictures do not exist anymore.
I came across an answer to this question online. She answered…
“I know the importance of printing photos. I only print the best ones. I do a lot of darkroom black and white photography, so, I know how to develop and print my own films. I value the old techniques of enlarging and developing. I love being able to leaf through my photos and look at them face to face and see them enlarged and in a physical format that I am able to frame and show the world. I print my digital photos of my friends, so I can blue-tack them to my wall to look at and remember the good times every day. I print my digital photos so I can frame and hang them. I print my digital photos so I can put them in albums for myself or for gifts for friends. I really see the benefits of printing. Why keep the photos all tucked away in a computer or stored on negatives, when the world should see them?”
But the truth is not a lot of us appreciate printed photos anymore. It’s easier to digitally store all these images. It doesn’t take up space in your house. If your memory card or storage space gets full all you have to do is move it to iCloud, Dropbox or any other form of online storage and delete it from your card or phone, enabling you to take more pictures.
You don’t have to buy a roll with 24 or 36 shots, insert it properly into your camera without exposing the film to sunlight and be selective of the shots you take to use your roll effectively.
Photographs have been made simple. With our phones and tablets you can take pictures anytime and anywhere without having to think twice. Some mobiles like IPhone, Motorola Zn5, Sony etc. have come up with ways to improve and step up mobile camera technology.

Weddings, birthdays, funerals, anniversaries, graduations, naming ceremonies etc.
