Yesterday I received my first ever set of professional prints. I can’t believe that having started digital photography over 4 years ago, this is the first time I’ve ever really done anything with my photos.
I mentioned in an earlier post that I am entering my first photography competition and need to submit prints. It’s made me think more about why we take photographs and that they shouldn’t end up filling bytes of hard drive space, never yo be seen again. Whilst Flickr and my website represent an end-point in my workflow, I mustn’t neglect the original reason for photography. That photographs also belong on walls, mantle pieces, and albums. My new year’s resolution should have been to print more photos! After reading a review of photographic printers in the Advanced Photographer magazine, I decided to use Loxley Colour because they offered good value for money and a wide range of options. I ordered them on Sunday and received them on Wednesday, 16 x 20, lustre finish. I would definitely recommend them for anyone else needing a quick, professional and quality service.
