CreativeLive – The Power of Print
Learn to create impact and interaction with your photos. People stare at screens for enough of the day, sometimes forgetting that the photos we share are supposed to be a tangible thing such as a print. When you visit a gallery with a tangible portfolio or are trying to land a client for a job, having prints of your work has a bigger impact than pulling out your phone and showing small digital images.
Printing your work and taking the time to look at it and understand it will, in turn, help you understand your photography better. Where you have been, where you are at and where you are going. This will also help people better understand how to sequence a gallery show or curate a layout for a book or zine.
Unless you shoot a good amount of film and have been printing then you are at risk of losing all of your work. Simply relying on hard drives or cloud-based services are not enough. Technology, while robust and sturdy still can have flaws. Making archival prints of your work not only ensures you a stronger future but will also back up your photos in the best way.
Chances are if someone can afford a good DSLR and some lenses, they can afford a good printer. Learn how to break down costs and profit from printing and selling your photos.
