I hope all is good with you and yours.
Ok so today I’ve got a question for you…
When it comes to your portfolio what do you have / use ???
- Digital Version eg iPad
- Printed Version
The reason I ask is that up until fairly recently I was only using a digital version on my iPad ; colours looked great, it was convenient, you could zoom in and so on, however that has now changed as I’m now going back to having a printed portfolio as my main one. I can’t say though if the reason for the change is motivated because I
lost left my iPad 3, sorry New iPad on a plane when coming back from Frankfurt and now have an iPad Mini which I love now I have the Logitech Ultra Thin Keyboard.
Sure I’ll always have my portfolio on my iPad too but having had some prints done lately I can’t help but feel that there’s just no comparison. It’s kind of hard to define why but there’s something special about actually holding a physical print.
I notice it with people I shoot for. When I show them their final images on the iPad sure (thankfully) they like the results but when I then turn up with a 24” print on board the reaction is on a whole new level…there’s a beaming smile, they hold it up, walk around with it to see it in different light, almost press their noses up against it looking in close; as a photographer and retoucher it just doesn’t get better than that 🙂
So from here on in I’m on a printing mission; both for the portfolio which incidentally is A3 in size for now as I’m toying with the idea of it being bigger, and for prints to hang on the walls.
Bottom line I’m very much of the opinion, despite being a self confessed geek, that print is still KING!
Have a good one and I’ll catch you back here tomorrow.
