What do you do with the photographs you take?
Aug 9, 2014

We spend a lot of time deciding what camera equipment suits us best, whether the lenses we buy are sharp and then worry about issues such as shutter shock etc. We then fill our hard drives up with  ORF’s JPEGS and RW2’s.

I am sure everybody has lots of different uses for their  photography. What do you do with the photographs you take?

What do I do with my photographs?

The most immediate use  is to illustrate my Blog that I started to let people I know back in the UK what I am getting up to in Italy. It has also seems to have a wider audience (the local tourist board found me through it and asked me for some photo’s for example).

I post some pictures here at DPR, it is nice to hopefully have a little audience for ones photographs.

But I have found the nicest thing to do is to create a book with Blurb ( or similar) especially to record our annual holiday.

Doing a book forces you edit savagely, you only include your best shots due to space and the end result will sit on your bookshelf and not buried away on a hard drive or if you print in a dusty drawer.

From time to time I set myself little photographic projects as a way of keeping my photography focused  and it is nice to have the end result in book form. At the moment I am working on a series of shots that I took of the Railway station in my town designed by Calatrava. Working this way also forces me to return to the subject and take extra shots from different angles to help make the project/ book flow.
