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.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day out there to all of you romantic types :)

I figured I would pop in and post a couple of Valentine-sy portraits for your enjoyment today.  Enjoy!

We do glamour too!

Oh don’t worry my friends, it’s not all weddings and art pieces around here at Justin Flood Photography. Sometimes it’s just fun to let one’s hair down, and to go a little crazy. That’s why we love to do some glamour shoots when we get the chance. That being said, I think it’s about time that we spent some time together going through some of my favorite glamour shots from this past year. As we should expect, this video is a little bit more high energy than the last couple, so turn up your speakers, and get ready to let those eardrums bleed! Don’t worry, it’s good for ya!
