Moments are fleeting, blink or not pay attention, and the moment becomes a memory. One reason why we take photos, is to try and keep hold of those memories, as clearly as possible. While I love digital photography, as much as the next iPhone photo addict, the nature of digital photography can also become fleeting.
The nature of digital also means it can be intangible. Just like how services like Netflix and Amazon Prime are becoming the new way of watching videos, it feels that looking at a screen is the way of viewing photos.
All our photos become part of one folder, a library of our own creation. Yet not to be held, passed to another, or shown as something other.
Photobooks really are the old style photo albums, which have been dragged into this century. And by that, I mean. They look good.
Or at least they can look good.
The photos show a photo book from Saal-Digital. You have a number of options to customize your book how you like, so my number one advice while ordering… TAKE YOUR TIME!
Take your time to work out not only what photos you’d like included, but the layout of the photos, any text you’d like to include, the style of the paper, style of the covers… what style you’d like the covers to be – THE LIST GOES ON.
Saal Digital are currently offering a £15 welcome voucher, which makes this a cheap option for anyone looking for a photobook.
In short, lots of options, good quality results, and better customer service then a lot of others out there.
But one final note about the photo book, I’ve featured. Our little one could pick out which Lego minifigure she was in the photos – no problems.
Now excuse me. I’m going to go and take some more pictures of small people in the big world out there.
(I was given a voucher from Saal Digital towards the cost of the above – but opinions expressed above are mine – ALL MINE!)
