3 Reasons You Should Print Your Digital Pictures!

When discussing the images students take with their cameras during our Thursday night photo classes, it surprises me that the overwhelming majority of the pictures taken are NEVER printed onto a hard copy of any kind. I always encourage our students to at least print the most important images they take. And of course, I'm asked "Why? There's no need to do that anymore!" I agree that many of the images that our customers take may never need to be printed, given that their usage as an image may be temporary (for work or reference purposes, for instance).

Where did all my photos go? (What's This #3)

About once a month or so , we get someone who comes into the store, horrified & in obvious distress. After giving them a paper bag so they don't hyperventilate, they inform us that ALL their vacation (grandchild's recital, holiday party shots, chance photos they took with a celebrity, etc) are gone & they don't know why...
