worries, no hassles and perfect every time.
It seems that the
new catchword for the last 10 to 15 years is "digital".
Any new product or service introduced has the buzzword
digital included as an adjective. This one little
descriptor, somehow suggesting a magic bullet, or potion
that solves all the issues that may have plagued an
industry or product before it's digital transformation.
There is no doubt that digital and computer technology
have transformed society and certainly the photographic
community. That's not bad thing. Progress is natural and
as artists and craftsmen we always strive to improve out
craft, to do more with less. Digital technology has
brought fantastic options to photographers, professional
and amateur alike that could not have been imagined
even 20 years ago. That's the great news.....
Now are you ready for... the Scary part....
The reason that we
work so hard here at The Photo Finishers is that we
believe that photographs and video, and audio recordings
are important, they represent our history, and can
trigger, emotional memories that can mean more in the
future that we could ever imagine today. If you have
taken the time to visit our site, I am betting that you
feel the same way. My Grandparents are gone now, and I
can tell you that the photographs and video I have of
them are priceless to me. When I see the pictures I
created inside their house, I remember being there. I
can hear the sounds and smell the smells. Those images
are priceless, and I can't bear the idea of losing them.
In the old days, just about the only thing that would
happen to a picture, was a natural disaster- a fire, or
a flood. Now with all the advances of digital
photography, comes something even more insidiously
devastating, that can wipe out more memories that fire
ever did. It's not particularly violent, but it is
something that we see all to often here at The Photo
The damaged Camera Card
The Locked up Camera
Crashed Hard Drives and
problem with digital is that we are not making backups
of our "negatives" whether on CD, or as prints, or on
redundant hard drive systems. We have been lulled into a
sense that digital is forever and infallible, therefore
we become lazy in printing and archiving and creating
albums for our photographs. Then a lighting storm comes
along and every photograph from the last five years
(Graduations, birthdays, weddings, holidays,
vacations)---- all gone---- forever. Don't let that
happen to you. Utilize printing services, make at least
one archival gold CD or DVD copy of your files. Please
trust our experience in saying that these things do
happen. Please don't let them happen to your family.
It's to important to us. It is our passion.
