What is “Portraits 2.0″ and why does it matter?

Today at Justin Flood Photography, we introduced something new, and something that we think is special.  Portraits 2.0.

So what IS portraits 2.0?  We’ll let me explain.  In the past few years,  I’ve witnessed the decline of the portrait as it was.  Very rarely do you see people other than school children sitting down for a portrait that will be hung above some vaunted mantle somewhere.   Why?  Because the photo print industry is dying a slow and painful death.    People just aren’t interested in the framed portrait anymore.

The thing is, the portrait ITSELF isn’t dying at all.   Just it’s old printed/framed incarnation.   Look for yourself, places like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Photobucket are overflowing with pictures of people taken all over the world!   Not to mention the fact that more and more, our online-self is becoming not just a mirror of our personality, but the place where many people will meet us for the first time.   As our online lives become more and more important,  the way we portray ourselves online will also become more important.

To put it simply, those photos we take with our cellphones in our bathroom mirrors are just not going to cut it anymore.

If we really want to make a great impression of ourselves, the time has come to enlist the aid of a professional portrait photographer who can really bring out the best in you with some beautiful lighting, and a little bit of attitude.

I’m not talking about sterile, boring school-style portraits.  I’m talking professional portraits that bring a bit of the fun and attitude of your real personality to a quality photo of yourself.  Think something more akin to a great band or music artist photo instead of the portraits that you got in 4th grade.

As of today, we’re offering a great deal to improve YOUR online presence.   $60.00 will get you a one hour shoot with all of your raw images online in a password protected gallery.  On top of that we will professionally retouch 3 images which you will receive in full and web resolutions for your use on Facebook, Twitter, Dating Sites, etc.  We even have hair and makeup stylists available for your shoot for an extra charge.

Take the first step in improving your online persona today and book your shoot!
