So, I have a question for you: Will your grandchildren be able to see photos or videos of your wedding? And will your own children have pictures of themselves as children to show their own kids?
In today's digital age, we are used to snapping pictures with our phone, uploading them to our favorite social media site, and then never looking at them again.
But the truth is, a lot of our memories are just bits of code.
Those photos and videos don't exist outside of a computer viewing device, and without properly making and maintaining backups of your files, they could easily be lost in a hard drive crash, or a natural disaster.
Over the last 20 years, technology has changed drastically. We went from floppy disks and VHS tapes to CDs and Flash Drives, like the ones on which I currently deliver my clients' films. However, computers and laptops, are now being made without ways to use those formats. and the next generation may not even need a laptop when they have their smartphones.
As a videographer and photographer, this is a topic that I will definitely be keeping watch of to make sure that my clients, friends, and family are able to enjoy their media for years to come, not just the first time they look at them.
I've put together an easy guide for the current recommendations on how to preserve and enjoy your home photos, videos, and the files. If you'd like to receive it, just click on the button below!
