DIGITAL IMAGES…read to the end to learn about discounts.
I’ll be honest as a photographer digital images are not my favorite thing, but let’s face it EVERYONE wants them!! Why are they not my favorite, you ask….it comes down to print quality and control. I put my heart and soul into each image, from the time I take the image, then when I select and edit the image and finally the place I choose to print the image.
Over the years I have used many different professional labs along with many consumer labs. I have printed countless images at multiple labs just to compare the quality. Finally after all this time and effort I have selected the lab that best reflects the images. This brings me back to digital files, once you purchase them you will take them to any lab out there! I have no idea how this lab will print and trust me they all print VERY differently! The thought of someone printing an image at a bad lab and hanging it on their wall for all to see just makes me want to cry, seriously! For my own sanity I limit the size digital images can be printed. They can be printed as 5x7s and smaller. Images 8×10 and larger need to be printed through me (at a discounted price, see below). Each digital image ordered will also include a 5×7 print, printed at a professional lab. The lab print is important to show you what the image is edited to look like when printed. All the digital files have already been color corrected, if you take the image to be printed somewhere their system may try to re-color correct the image resulting in a bad print!
Again lets go back to the heart and soul part…after I take the images I edit them. Editing is when I add my personal style to the pictures. I add just the right amount of saturation. I crop them just the right way, the way I feel looks just right. Then you purchase the digital image and decide you want to see the picture with more saturation…cropped closer…..tilted sideways…oh the possibilities. You may think the new image looks great, but as the Artist that is not what I created :) This is an area that I just have to let go. As much as I hope you love each image just the way it is I have no control over what you do once you have the digital images. Please be nice to them
Once you purchase a digital image you can print is as many times as you want (5×7 and smaller). This is a great option for birth announcements and Christmas cards. Purchasing multiple images allows you to print images for everyone you know but most importantly it allows you to have a digital backup.
SPECIAL OPTIONS DISCOUNTS:
With digital images along comes a whole new set of options! Each digital image you purchase will include a copy of the color file plus the black and white file. In addition I also include a lab printed 5×7 (you can select to have the print in color or black and white). To ensure print quality I also offer reduced pricing on prints purchased through me :) Here is how it works:
Once you purchase digital files I will reload your gallery and extend it for 2 weeks (reload can take 48-72 hours). I will then take all the images that you ordered digital files for and reduce the priceallowing you to order additional prints through my lab and giving me peace of mind to know that your images will look awesome!
