Welcome to my blog. On this page you will find articles I personally write about the photography industry and my work. You will also see blogs showing the photos from many of my photo sessions.
Once you get your digital photos back, then what? In my mind, it’s displaying your photos.
I have often written that it is a shame to keep the photos as digital images on a computer and not do anything with them. There are several ways these photos can be displayed, including photo albums, prints and wall art.
Trust your photographer to provide suggestions on what to do with your favorite digital images. It’s fine to share them online, post them on your Instagram, etc., but it’s a great idea to save them in other ways.
One of the best ways is a photo album. Older people remember photo albums. When you took pictures you would get actual prints and those who were organized would put them in photo albums. I have a shelf full of albums in my basement.
Wedding albums are great mementos from a wedding. You can trust your photographer to take the photos you love and arrange them in a photo album. Albums can range from the more inexpensive bound book to the heirloom leather-bound album. Your photographer can give you prices for these items.
Wall art is a large portrait, usually as a large-framed print or a canvas print, that can be hung on the wall. Many couples love canvas wall hangings, and they look beautiful.
Even a simple print in a 5-by-7 or 8-by-10 frame is a great way to display your photos.
I encourage you to talk to your photographer about the options available to display your photos.
Your photographer should have a go-to lab available to provide these displays. Photographers like myself will give you a print release, which allow you to print the photos as you please. However, the best idea is to allow your photographer to order prints for you from a professional lab. You will get better results than getting prints from someplace like Walgreens. The cheap labs don’t take extra care to make sure the colors are right and everything is perfect.
