The Rewards of Photo Printing
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.
Print copies of photos have a more defining results than its soft copy versions on screen, that is why it is recommended that avid photographers invest on photo printers so they can examine well in details their recent photographs and make the necessary adjustments on their focus or close shots later in their future photo shoots, which, therefore, makes for a better editing than digitally, photo editing through the computer.
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.
Having your photos onscreen may take effort, but the appreciation of your captive pictures lasts for just a few minutes and all the hard work, chasing after the perfect natural light or whatever captive happenings you endeavour to store in your camera, are left in the hard drive archives later on, which is of an entirely different appreciation if you have print copies of your pictures as you have tangible proofs of photos which you have brought to life and reminiscing them tangibly is an emotional experience than clicking your computer and retrieving your works in the computer archives.
There is just no comparison with that kind of emotional satisfaction that a photographer experiences when his/her works are put into prints and displayed in either an album or exhibited for people to appreciate it as compared to uploading the pictures in the computer and for some precious minutes, the pictures may earn a huge following, but then afterwards these are eventually left forgotten into the computer storage, which is not definitely a tangible satisfaction that can allow a photographer to feel that euphoric feeling. The real test of art being well appreciated is when your print pictures are bought and hang on the walls of people’s homes. Such emotional experiences can further inspire a photographer to experiment more on his/her art and compels him/her to create more images.
There is so much happiness that anyone can feel when they revisit old photos, those captured moments by the camera where anyone can recall the stories that go with it, that is why printed pictures are instruments of inspirational memories, emotional flashbacks of the past.
