Isn’t it nice to see photographs in print. Today there is an increasing use of photographs in digital form only. Through smart phones and social media the number of photographs taken and shared is enormous but it is quite often a case of seen today and forgotten tomorrow.
I think this is true even in the professional photography world. More and more wedding couples only want their photographs in digital form. I often wonder how many even bother to get prints made never mind albums. Are they relegated to a file on the laptop or sitting forlornly in the timeline of their Facebook page?
What prompted these thoughts was a recent phone call from a bride from September 2010 – yes 2010 for whom I had supplied high resolution photographs on DVD as requested.
Now almost two years on she wanted a print version. Not a full blown album but something better than the high street offerings. I sourced a very good company that makes great quality Photobooks, did the design, got them printed and now copies of these books are winging their way to the USA and England to relatives.
I realise there is still the work and responsibility of design and quality the same as for a full scale album for less financial return but when I received them and was checking them out before delivery to the client I remembered the pleasure of simply seeing photographs in print.
Below is just one spread from the 26 page hard cover photobook.
