What about the digitals?

In today's digital age, it's easy to be tempted to opt for digital images rather than prints and photographic artwork. After all, digital images are convenient, accessible, and easy to share. However, there's something incredibly special and irreplaceable about having a physical print of a photo that digital images just can't replicate.

When you hold a print in your hands, you can feel the texture of the paper and the weight of the image. You can run your fingers over the textures of fine art paper or smooth matte finish and appreciate the intricate details that are be lost in a digital image. You can see the colors come to life in a way that just can't be matched on a screen.

But it's not just about the physical experience of holding a print. It's also about the emotional impact that a print can have. When you have a print of a photo, it becomes a tangible memory that you can cherish for years to come. It's something that you can pass down to future generations, allowing them to connect with your past in a way that simply can't be done with a digital image.

Think about it - when was the last time you scrolled through your phone's camera roll to reminisce about a special moment? It's easy to forget about those digital images when they're buried among hundreds of other photos, but when you have a photograph displayed in your home or office, you're reminded of that moment every time you see it. It becomes a part of your daily life and can bring joy and comfort to you and those around you.

Of course, not all prints are created equal. That's why it's important to choose a photographer who provides high-quality prints and photographic art that will stand the test of time. Prints and artwork should be made using archival-quality paper and ink to ensure that they won't fade or deteriorate over time. A skilled photographer will also take the time to carefully edit and enhance each image to ensure that it looks its best in print form.

It's also worth noting that prints can be a more environmentally friendly option than digital images. While it's true that digital images don't require physical materials like paper and ink, they do require energy to maintain and store. Plus, when you print an image, you're creating a physical object that can be reused or recycled.

So, while digital images may seem like the more convenient option, there's something incredibly special and irreplaceable about having a physical copy of a photo. Prints offer a tactile and emotional experience that just can't be replicated by digital images, and they provide a lasting memory that can be cherished for years to come. So when you're choosing a photographer, be sure to consider one who provides high-quality prints that will stand the test of time.

As a boutique photographer in eastern North Carolina, areas surrounding New Bern, I make it my priority to deliver custom art work on the highest archival or museum quality available. From the use of fine art papers to rag mats, and partner with local framers. This is the stuff you will decorate your home with and what your children will have to add to their homes as well. Stories to pass down and quality that only increases in value as time passes.
