Q+A with Amy

1.) How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera? Enjoyable or painful?
I absolutely loved using the disposable camera! Having to think about the lighting and the angle and whether or not I had everything I wanted to capture in frame or not! It was a real treat to have an actual camera in my hand as opposed to a smartphone of a digi cam.

2.) How did it make you feel not being able to see the photos as they were taken and not being able to edit or know what the photos turned out like?
I relished the fact that I had no idea what any of the images may turn out like! Not knowing is a real novelty these days. Nowadays you can triple check every pic you take before sharing it with the world and I enjoyed the idea of the “unknown”! And I really liked not having to stress or waste time worrying about what filter will make my butt look the best was such a relief!

3.) From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
OMG that is super hard! I love all of them for a different reasons, because they are all really good representations of what I can not live without in my life! But if I had to choose, I’d say the pic of my house because it represents so much more to me then just shelter, it’s where I live with my family and party with my friends and is my place of comfort from the world and it’s also all in shot! But also the pic of my father as “Christmas Elvis” is hilarious and the pic of my two best guy friends is too funny, they just look so unsure of what was going on!

4.) Would you be interested in shooting another roll?
Yes, definitely!

5.) Is there anything else we could include or introduce to make the experience more interesting?
Maybe topics of things to only capture for my second roll. Or travel rolls would be great too after the initial “indisposable roll”!

6.) Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfie?
Yes, I liked that people could see who I was and what I looked like, it almost sets the tone for the roll of film to follow. Although I totally cheated and took a couple selfies on my iPhone first to see what it may look like from a particular angle!

7.) What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
I was really happy, it’s so interesting to see what actual turns out! Like for example I thought that I had totally captured everything perfectly in my pic of all my Musical Theatre Programs and in actual fact it was so off, you could see my shadow and it was way off centre!

8.) Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
I would try to start it as soon as I get the camera and try to be a little more “Arty” and less literal maybe and a little bit less rushed.

9.) Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
Definitely! Any kid of prize would be great, but imagine if there was an incentive to WIN a photography course or something like that, that’d be sooo super rad!

10.) Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment?
OMG yes that would be so fun, I’d feel a little famous in a way! I love the idea of random people out in the big bad world viewing my pics, it’d be even better to know what they thought after they saw the exhibition and if they had anything interesting to say about my particular pics!

11.) Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
The indisposable concept is such a great idea in today’s modern world of exponentially growing technology, Smartphone’s and Instagram. The indisposable concept really makes you stop and take notice of the important things in life and we just don’t do that anymore and we really should. The world is an amazing place, filled with incredible people and the indisposable concept helped me remember that! So thanks!
