Go Digital Or Go Home? – Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Wedding Photographer
March 26th

The Digital Age.

Everything is digital.

Television shows and movies.

Your favorite recording artists are a click away.

You can download your favorite magazines and newspapers online.

Books are available to download to your favorite device with the click of a mouse.

Isn’t professional photography as well? We have already done away with film. Some people shoot film, but they are the exception.

I have been silently struggling with the photography industry going digital.

Since the art form began the industry was a product based business.

You know, “I’ll take 2 8×10’s 6 5×7’s and 16 wallets.”

Well, the industry is moving away from that.

Today people take photos, put them on their computers and share them on Facebook and other social media sites. They may purchase a 5×7 for the grandparents, or a large wall portrait for their homes, but they aren’t doing as much of that as in years past.

One  trend I’ve noticed is that most of my brides tell me that they want the digital files to keep.

So what do you do? Do you want prints and albums? Or are you looking for a digital solution? Or both?

Keep your eyes peeled, there are changes coming to Steve Lewis Photography fairly soon.

    You speak the truth. While I think it’s important to actually print pictures and I like to encourage that, the truth is that we live in a digital age and it can’t be ignored.

    People do want digital. But you can’t replace the big beautiful wall portrait or canvas! It’s sad to think that some people just keep images on CD and never do anything with them!

    The digital dilemma! I personally love prints because in 50 years, I don’t want my kids to have a CD as their only “photos” of our family.

    Good post and photography is definitely changing, one thing for your clients to remember is when you hire an artist, you really should pay to showcase the art you are paying for in print form. That beautiful portrait will be remembered for generations to come much better than the CD or flash drive that won’t work on the newest computers. A good mix of each is really what you should be looking for.

    Digital is here that’s for sure. I think prints will always be important for having something tangible to show.
