As a photojournalist, I have hundreds, even thousands, of photos, both actual photos and digital ones.
A friend of mine is getting ready to move to Georgia. Another friend and I prepared a photo album for her.
When I went through my 50 albums that I’ve put together so far, it was great when I found duplicates that I could give to her. I didn’t have to scan the photos or take the negatives in to have a copy made.
I found a huge stack of duplicates of my grandchildren when they were about three months old. They were such adorable babies, twins, a boy and a girl. I didn’t throw them away. I need to check with my daughter to see if she ever received a copy of the photos, now famous in the family.
I do throw away bad photos. Years ago, when I went to the Nikon School, the instructor said to get rid of photos that weren’t good.
Good advice. No need to go to the trouble to store those.
Let me know what you’re doing with your duplicate photos in the Comment section below.
