So you have your beautiful prints with digital files. What are you to do? Of course, there’s the obvious, you post them on social media, where you may or may not get the likes you think they should receive. You put all the digital files on your phone, so that you can show all the pictures to your family, friends and work colleagues. Eventually the photos will get lost with the thousands of other photos you have on your phone. You have been promising yourself to organise your photos into albums to make the best ones more accessible but you haven’t quite got around to doing it because you’re too busy or it’s just too overwhelming.
And the prints! Well they have now been stored somewhere until you can find the time and energy to get them framed and proudly hung on your wall.
So let’s flip this; create a gallery wall of your best portraits or memories so that you can view them everyday and see your prints beautifully framed. These will last a lifetime, if done properly.
Most storage devices won’t be around forever as they are always evolving. Remember the floppy disk! I’m going back a few years now, oh and now I’m showing my age!
I get great pleasure from my gallery wall. Of course I show photos from my phone and iPad, but the greatest joy I have is printing and framing my images and creating a gallery wall.
This is mine! What does yours look like?
