OUT OF THE BOX - SURREALISM PHOTOGRAPHY | TIFFANY ALONZO

Although I've been behind the lens as a photographer since 2006, I decided to have some fun and do some "out of the box" self portraits. I guess you could call these extreme selfies.  It's kinda funny that I call this style "out of the box" and two of them in box/square format. After all these years, I've recently been trying to "find myself" as a photographer. Figuring out what my personal style is and what kind of photography I enjoy the most.  I don't want to just "take pictures", I want to CREATE.
I ended up going down into my Studio and creating random, non-traditional portraits. If you were to label them, I guess they'd be considered Surrealism.

I've really enjoyed playing with levitation, illusion and square format. Creating an image that may or may not have a story behind it; leaving it up to the viewer to decide what the concept may be.  I plan on taking more "out of the box" portraits in the near future, whether they feature myself or a model. I also plan on jumping head first into the genre that sparked my interest in photography as a child: black and white.
