There is a good article in today’s Boston Globe talking about how the color photographic print is passing into history, at least as a ubiquitous consumer item. It appears that the majority of people now view their photos on their computer screens, cellphone screens, etc. The article makes a good case for the value of the color print and its many advantages over viewing your photographic work on a 72 dpi LCD screen. What’s the use of that 12 or 14 megapixel SLR if you don’t print anything any more? I like having the physical object to hold in my hand and study for a few minutes before I proceed to the next one. Makes me want to run out and buy another case of Tmax or Fujifilm slide film.
