Print your photos.

I love printing my photos , their is something about holding the print and looking at the fine detail and feeling the texture, its something that the monitor can't reproduce.

In the old days of film most of the photos are of family including dogs and holidays and we would wait for days to see the final 6 x 4 prints from the local printer. It was exciting to have those prints in the hand and then to look at the completed photo albums that my wife would skilfully put together complete with captions, they are today some of our most prized possessions and would be first out the door in the event of a fire! There would be many trips as their are a lot of albums!

I have recently upgraded my printer to the fabulous Epson SPC P800 it is capable of printing up to A2. I use Ilford Galerie Prestige paper Smooth Pearl. I have also printer in Japanes hand made papers and also some wonderful Canson Rag papers, the printer handles them beautifully combined with LightRoom for editing.

So my point is don't leave your photos in the computer hard drive, pick some favourites and print!
