Sample Portraiture Pro Trends - Each Portraiture PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online portraiture articles, videos and images. Examples:

Personified Cuisine Meals are youthfully re-shaped as parents strive to encourage familial bonds Implications - As familial bonding becomes less frequent due to distractive technological developments, solitary actions among youths have become more prevalent. Seeking to foster closer ties through traditional everyday routines, parents are turning to personified food shapes to add youthful characteristics that children can relate to. Playfully presented food combines comical aesthetics with the need to connect with others through more lighthearted and approachable means.

Celebrated Incarceration Prison life enters marketing as demand for consumer rebellion rises Implications - As the cultural attitude toward law breaking becomes more lax with specific regard to media and celebrity culture, trouble with the law and being sent to prison is being rebranded as acceptable, tasteful and even celebratory market-wide. This acceptance of shortcomings welcomes those on the sidelines of society back into relevancy and lowers the standard for acceptable behavior amidst younger generations. A fascination with incarceration signifies a true extension and fruition of the "bad boy" image that has been played up previously, but never idolized in such blatancy.

Inked Acceptance Tattooed photography captures reflect the emergence of more risqué imagery Implications - With mainstream media exposing consumers to features that are often outside their comfort zone, elements that were once considered risqué are becoming widely accepted and normalized within society. Photographic imagery that focuses on the beauty of body art and tattoos reflects a more open and accepting approach to non-traditional symbolism, showcasing a turn towards more provocative representations in everyday media.

Masculinity Redefined Fatherly photography suggests a shift toward more familial roles for men Implications - With women becoming more independent and career-focused due to more open and encouraging educational opportunities, men have subsequently faced a shift in gender roles, integrating themselves into more familial responsibilities that were once dominated by the opposite gender. Reflecting a shift in gender expectations, fatherly photography showcases a turn toward more domestic roles for men, echoing a transformation of traditional familial frameworks.

Doll Adaptation The realistic progression of dolls illustrates a shift in body image perceptions Implications - With societal expectations constantly changing as beliefs and opinions evolve, retailers are looking to keep their products in tune with those developing tastes through more culturally relevant connections. Modifications to such toys as Barbie dolls that feature more realistic references to womanly figures illustrates a shift in gender stereotypes, providing consumers with a portrayal of females in a more confident and empowering manner reflective of modern times.

Fashionable Consumption Brands equate fashion with food to speak to consumer need rather than want Implications - Playing with the concept of shopping addiction, the equation of food with fashion in marketing is taking the association for consumers a step further. Transforming fashion from want to need, the campaigns speak to the act of material consumption, which is -- however debatable -- a major element in economic dealings and requires constant augmentation for continued patronage. By turning fashion into food, brands allow the unconscious mind to process the imagery and blur the lines between what the mind perceives as necessity and frivolous.
