Digital Photography: To Print? or Not to Print?

The digital era of photography has brought about many advancements and conveniences. We now have the ability to shoot, edit, upload, and print within just a few hours after the event has ended, a process that used to take weeks from start to finish. Personally, I don’t make prints for myself very often. I think I am saving it for a rainy day – a reason to look back on my life’s memories, years and years in the future. When I get out the paper and pull the cover off the printer it is either for my family, or for a client of Frohtography. From the perspective of my business, I see mixed feelings on prints. Yes they can be a bit costly, especially as high quality paper seems to be made by fewer companies, but I think it is important to have a hard copy of memories from important events in your life… You never know when your computer could crash.

About 5 years ago, the external hard drive I was using for backups failed. I lost over 50,000 pictures (I now keep 3 digital backups of my photos). The drive is still in storage, hoping one day that it may be possible to recover those images. I have a shoebox of photos, some given to me by my parents and grandparents, some taken by myself. They date back to well before I was born. No risk of crashing.

Looking through a shoebox of print photographs is like the feeling you get when putting on a pair of headphones and listening to vinyl (which if you’ve never done, you should add it to your bucket list). There’s just something that feels good about having a photograph in your hand and taking the time to let the memories come back to you. It feels real.

Sarah and Jeff stopped over today to choose which pictures they would like to have turned in to prints. I’ve started the process and wanted to share with you the results.

Astrophotography

After the “Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse” on October 8th, I decided to purchase a Celestron PowerSeeker 127EQ so I could explore deeper space and try my hand at astrophotography. It’s been cloudy here every night since the telescope arrived. Much to my excitement, I could see stars when I arrived home after photographing tonight’s NACKA kickball games.

Since this is my first time using a telescope for astrophotography, I chose the brightest visible object in the sky as my subject. I’m not sure what it is, but it is producing some awesome colors! If anyone knows their stars, it would be cool to find out what this is. I was looking to the South East from Penfield NY at 11:15 pm. Here is what I captured:
