3 Reasons Why You Should Print Your Photos Really Big

Many of us love the experience of creating photos, but have a habit of stockpiling those photos on a mishmash of drives and cloud storage, where they remain unseen by ourselves or anyone else.  Sometimes guilty of this myself, I long ago stopped printing my work. With web based portfolios, social media, cloud file delivery, and all my customers and audience online, why bother? Over time, I got rid of all my printers, outsourced everything and generally avoided anything to do with putting ink on paper.  I’m sure I am not alone in this, how many of you out there haven’t printed anything in a long time, or have never printed anything at all?

Recently, I had the opportunity to to select one of my favorite photos, and have a print made of it by ArtisanHD.  When the piece arrived and I opened the box, it all came flooding back. Just how cool it’s to see your work big on the wall.  This wasn’t about ego, it was about seeing the product of creativity and effort, reliving the memory of making that image, and rediscovering just how much I love photography.  In this article I’ll explain how printing your work can make you a better photographer, through my experience of having a large print made of one of my favorite photos.
