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.
