I still Print.

Photography is awesome. And usually, I review my edited Fotos on a screen, either on my laptop or on the iPad, and that is usually fine. Then I upload my favourites here and/ or on Instagram.

But sometimes, it is just not enough. And when that happens, I break out my trusty old Photo Printer and print myself some 15cm x 10cm Fotos. Usually, they come out very nice, but sometimes they do not.

But usually, nine out of ten Prints come out really nice. And then, after inspecting the Foto, I put it on my wall.

By now, I have two walls filled with beautiful Prints. And I am just about to start putting Fotos on the third. I really do love my Foto Walls. They always inspire me to do more and get better in whatever it is I am doing at the time.

When I want some larger sized Prints, I usually order them online, as the Quality is way better than it is at the local drugstore.

Sometimes, I do not put my Prints on my Wall though. Sometimes, I turn them into beautiful Postcards to send to friends and family. And while I have significantly streamlined my process, I am still making them myself.

And yes, I have bought Postcards before, but the homemade ones have that personal touch you just can not get any other way. Now I only need my own Postcard backings.

I have also done my own Photo Book in the Past. As a gift for my mom. It was a beautiful experience, but I have to say that I actually prefer professionally printed Books. They just look way better than what I am able to put together.

And I am currently working on a new Photo Book about the Harz. Maybe I will even publish that, if I find out how such things work, especially with taxes and such things.

Overall, I really love Prints. And while printing obviously costs some money for paper and ink, that is money well spent. Or at least it is in my book.
