Why I deliver digital files to my customers?

Today I have found some of my very own writing that got lost for some reason... I just stumbled across this reasoning of my own from some 2 years ago...  Well, not much has changed in my own attitude during this time, I would say. Was a little offline in terms of reading about these topics lately, so not sure if fellow photographers are just as scared of giving away digital copies of their photos or not so much any more.

Question to photographers: do you deliver digital files?
Question to clients: do you expect to receive digital photos from your photographer?

Here is the whole text from early 2013 or maybe late 2012:

As time goes

Today remembered one of the funnier moments captured back in 2011.

While looking at this photo, I realized that today it would look a bit different. I got less 'contrasty' over the years, I guess... Here is same photo today (coming from Lightroom).

Happy birthday, Maya ;)
