Displaying Stunning Photography Prints

Stunning photographs deserve to be printed and viewed in a variety of sizes, materials, and lighting options.  Photography displayed on a wall, in a book, or in an album can be viewed in many various light sources, which can make the photographs stand out in very unique ways.  You can use track lighting to isolate and limit the light on the photograph print.  Many new LED lights burn cooler and last longer than the traditional lights once used to show photography.  There are colored gels and filters that can be added to the lighting to create unique colors and effects that enhance what the photographer has created in the photograph.

A photograph viewed on a tablet, smartphone, computer or other electronic device will not be seen in the same light.   You can’t put a track light over the photograph shown on electronic devices.  The lighting has already been defined and predetermined by the manufacturer of the electronic devices.   Viewing photography on an electronic device limits the angle you can see the photographs.  The electronic device or file has to be passed or sent from one person to another to view the photograph.  The electronic device has to be properly calibrated regularly in order to see the correct colors.  It is impossible to see a large poster size print on standard sized and portable electronic devices.  A projector is needed to see larger versions of the photograph.

A properly printed photograph can be mounted to many different materials; paper, wood, canvas, and aluminum.  Photographs can be used to make many different things; calendars, greeting cards, sports cards, high school senior announcements, scrapbooks, posters, and photo books.  The sizes the print can be made is almost unlimited as long as the file size is 6-8 MB or more.  Prints and albums caused people to sit closer together to discuss the subject, persons in the photo, style of the photograph, and the shared memories.  A printed album or book of photographs can never be jacked by someone living in another country.  A printed photograph doesn’t have to be backed up and saved to the newest hardware or software.

Why are you keeping your photographs on your computer, phone, tablet, or other electronic device?  If your electronic device failed, are you certain your photographs can easily be rescued?  If your computer, device, or cloud is hacked, will your photographs be made public and cause problems for you?  What keeps you from printing your photographs and sharing them in photo books, calendars, greeting cards, albums, and much more?
