1.) How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera?
I found the experience of using the disposable camera very enjoyable! I do not own a digital camera and I love the idea of being able to photograph on an open playing field without needing the most new and expensive camera.
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?
Not being able to see the photos until they were developed was fun and sometimes I forgot and would go to look at a picture I had just taken. It was cool though because it made things more interesting, even though some of my photos did not turn out.
3.) From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
My favorite image from my role was 014_14.JPG (the dark one with just a pair of cat eyes). It is my favorite because of the moment I took it. The picture isn’t a very good one but I like it because there was a cat wandering around and when I went to take a picture of her, she ran through a hole in a fence. I stuck my camera in the gap, and not knowing whether the cat was still there, I snapped the picture. It was exciting to see once I got the film developed that the cat was still waiting there, and all you can see is her eyes glowing in the dark.
4.) Would you be interested in shooting another roll?
Yes, I am interested in shooting more roles and already have.
5.) Is there anything else we could include or introduce to make the experience more interesting?
I can’t think of anything to be added.
6.) Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfle?
I did enjoy shooting a selfie! It was strange because I don’t take selfies usually, but it was even more interesting because I was unable to see what it looked like, which scares a lot of people not to be able to delete a picture until it’s perfect. I liked how it turned out and felt more genuine than if I were to be able to change/delete it.
7.) What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
7. I was very excited at the outcome of my film, though I discovered disposable cameras do not like close-ups.
8.) Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
I would like to have another go, and this time I will not take any close ups.
9.) Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
I might enter into a contest-type competition, but I would be less likely to do so than if it were just like this, for fun.
10.) Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment.
I would love to see my photos presented in whatever way!
