Yeah, I know, it's like that everywhere.
Digital can do amazing things and very conveniently, and it can only get better.
One bad habit that people have picked up though, is they stopped printing. To me that's a shame, because the whole point is the print and no screen can match the quality and viewing experience of a good print.
But noone cares, especially when they don't have prints side to side to compare. Also they "can always print later, if we want to", but that "later" never comes, until you have forgotten about the jpeg files or lost them at a disk crash or along an OS upgrade or whatever.
Maybe the photographers are to blame too in some cases, when they charge extortionate prices for prints, just as they used to do in the past. They forget though that in the film days, they could do that because a big enlargement was a very hands-on thing that took considerable time and human input, as well as materials (papers, chemicals, test strips, etc.). And also the client *had* to have some prints, because it was the only way to view the photos.
Now that they can view the photos for almost free, and that a big print is just a click in terms of time and effort, there's no way you can charge that much for prints/reprints. The higher price should be for the service, and not trying to milk them in prints.
