Photography changed the world and it’s how we remember modern history.
A compact camera would always come to Whitby with the family for our Summer holiday, ice cream surrounding a smiling face (standard shot) and a combination of family groups in a beer garden with pint pots dominating the foreground, if the weather was good there would be a buried sibling beach shot. The film would stay in the camera from sunshine to snow and by January the film would be popped in an envelope and posted to Truprint. A week later 36 glossy 6″x4″ prints would drop through the letterbox (about 8 of these photos would be keepers) and you’d get a free AGFA roll of 35mm film that would last you another year.
fast forward to mobile phone photography where you can take 100 visual images and keep none or possibly one, once you’ve put it through a slimming app (what a time to be alive). The value of the outtakes increases tenfold (loads) over time, but if every image has to be perfect, the finger partially covering the lens shot will be lost forever.
when I’ve shot and then designed a wedding album I love turning the pages and seeing my images in print.
“Images in our lives have not lost any of there significance, we just need to look after them better.” – Gary Walsh
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind
Amazing wedding photographer North East…
