1.) How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera?
Disposables despite their limited capacity for depth of field still tell a story and captures the emotional essence of the composition and life better than digital.
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 was much more excited and anticipated the results more of the unknown. It allows me to be more selective yet progressively lets me entertain notions of immediacy.
3.) From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
I personally loved 003 or the subway entrance. There’s a bit of mystery as to what is going on but you can tell life is being captured. It’s romantic, cinematic, and enigmatic all at once.
4.) Would you be interested in shooting another roll?
Absolutely. I have 4 rolls that need to be developed. Ready to contribute.
5.) Is there anything else we could include or introduce to make the experience more interesting?
I’m curious to work in a more staged setting. It would be interesting to work and control light better that way. It can be conceptualised in many ways.
6.) Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfle?
I personally hate selfies. The selfie that is posted was interrupted by a lingering photobombed hand.
7.) What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
I didn’t know what to expect and I questioned my abilities as a photographer to capture moments as we live them. But it got me excited to figure out my next editorial selection process.
8.) Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
Absolutely. A lot of my shots were candid and while we live in an era of self awareness, there’s still the element of surprise. It’s delightful.
9.) Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
Certainly. Of course the rules would have to be conceptual in approach. Perhaps with a narrow focus (portraits, themed, etc).
10.) Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment.
Nothing would make me happier.
11.) Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
Well we all know film captures life much better than digital. At the same time we have to realize the finite abilities of film. While it captures the ephemeral, we have to realize what we’re contributing or changing when we talk about the photo zeitgeist.
