    "Making Prince"

    From an article on Petapixel

    "In a move that sent shockwaves through a quiet sleepy neighborhood, photos from an iPhone were printed onto photographic paper."

    "Lynn’s daughter, a 13-year-old who loves technology said, “Yeah, we were all surprised when mom showed us this box with pictures in it. At first, I didn’t know what they were; I thought they were greeting cards or something, but then I recognized them from her phone. It was pretty crazy. I was all, ‘OMG. I’m actually HOLDING a picture in my hand.’ I mean, I’ve held other stuff in my hands, but I didn’t know, like, you could hold a picture.”

    "Said one neighbor,”When she first told us she did this, we took bets that she’d been drinking. Or she saw it on Pinterest. We couldn’t fully understand what she meant by ‘making prince.’ The only time we’d talked about that was after watching “Purple Rain” back in high school, and even then the words “making prince” had the words: “out with” in between them. But then we realized she meant the other kind of prints, which seemed kind of stupid — why would you do that when you have a phone and a computer? But now that we see them, it doesn’t seem like a bad idea at all.”

    So many photographs never get printed nowadays and will eventually be lost forever. So often the history of an area is documented by old photographs but this will be far more difficult in the future.

    My goodness me Rick

    WHAT an article boy i love that ''Prince'' indeed , it just goes to show how few images are printed these days i wonder if you did a survey on how many members here alone get prints made of their work what the results would be ?

    I for one am guilty of not doing anywhere near the prints i should do, but when i have i have been blown away with what can be achieved yet i am still lazy ! depending instead on my computer email and iPad

    I have a large house with plenty of wall space......which is virtually empty why ?

    Great article it has made me think

    Cheers

    yep, I`m the same....big walls, not many pics hanging. I find it very difficult to select which one as I have sooo many from our trips etc. But, am getting three done in a week or so and really looking forward to seeing them BIG.
