Quantum Fox Photography Can I have my Digital Files?
Quantum Fox Photography Can I have my Digital Files?
Before I would have said no, but as of this year, yes you can. But before I just hand over your files, think carefully about why you want them. Is it to share on social media? To print yourself? Because you think they will last forever this way?
THINK AGAIN – We Have Entered the Era of the Photographic Lost Generation
We live in a digital age and we take more pictures than ever before, but we are going to be a generation with more lost images than any other. As technology changes at lightning speed, these images are sadly going to be lost. So the memories you are so desperate to capture today, won’t be around tomorrow.
If you think about your child, how many of their photos are on your phone? How many of those have you printed? What if your phone falls and gets smashed, will you still have those images somewhere?
The harsh reality is 42% of people aged between 30 & 44 (yes, that’s probably you) will look back in a decade and wonder where photos of their children’s childhood, holidays and family get-togethers, have gone. Your grandchildren will ask you questions and you won’t have the album to flick through to show them what fun you had at the beach, or what his grandad looked like. Why? Because people no longer print photographs or create photo albums. In fact, 67% store their photos solely on a computer or phone. You probably have every intention of printing, but it’s a pain and it’s time consuming.
Also, think about how technology changes, we had photos saved on a '95 computer, it used floppy discs, and we had some of our first digital images on it (scanned prints). So what happened to those photos? They are on a hard drive, stuck in someone's closet, because the computer died and it would be too expensive to have it hooked up to get anything off of it. Besides that fact, the images were such low resolution that anything you could print from it now would be incredibly pixelated.
My first digital camera was a Nikon point and shoot, I took photos in Ireland back in 2005 on it, and now, except for the ones my grandmother made sure to print for me, I don't even know where they are, or if they even still exist on an old hard drive.
So Why PRINT?
We have to remember the value and importance of printed, framed, and mounted photographs in our lives and for the generations after us. Children love to see images of themselves around the house, studies have shown it even increases their self worth and self esteem. My son has a collage of his first year hanging, and even though he's not even 2 yet, loves to look at them and discuss them with his daddy. I also have caught him standing on our couch to be able to better view a collage we have hanging there of our family.
My husband and I have a wedding album we like to pull out on our anniversary and go through together, and will be able to show it to my son when he is older.
Also, blank walls are so boring.. my bathroom wall was empty for the first year after we moved in, and my husband asked me if we could please hang something in there. (Then I shared my plan to have my son's first birthday smash and splash hanging, since I thought him in a washtub taking a bath would be super cute in the bathroom.) So our walls stayed empty for another couple of months until after he turned one. Now I have 3 beautiful metal prints hanging, that I admire every day.
Why Order a Print?
Because there are moments you can’t get back, but a print can make you feel them again.
Because your prints are for today, tomorrow and all the tomorrows after that.
Because the place to save money is not on the most important purchases.
Because you can touch and feel your memories.
Because a hard drive doesn’t trigger a smile.
