Here’s a cool idea that has the added advantage of spreading your work around. Give away free prints. Now I’m not talking about big fine art prints. I’m talking small prints
If you want to impress your friends with your photo prowess, think about investing in a small portable photo printer like the Epson Picture Mate. About.com has a review of the top five small, portable photo printers here.
Most offer rechargable battery packs which makes the perfect companion if you want to take holiday photos and instantly print and share them with friends and family.
These printers typically weigh about three pounds and make rich, vibrant, fast 4×6″ prints that will easily rival anything your local drugstore photo counter offers.
There’s something about being able to make a photo, and hand someone a print one minute later that makes photography fun again.
So spread your work around and make instant prints at family parties. It’s a great way to get everyone involved in your love of photography.
