1.) How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera? Enjoyable or painful?
I have always enjoyed using disposable cameras, being able to share my world only made it more enjoyable.
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 seeing the photos only makes the experience more exhilarating as you never know how they will turn out and over time you forget what you have captured and this makes developing the photos more exciting.
3.) From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
My favourite image here is no. 16 because i had accidentally dropped my disposable camera and i thought i had broken it and i didn’t know if it was still capturing my photos. when i finally got it developed i was so amazed to see these streaks of colour on the images that were a result of this accident. It only made me appreciate the quality of the photos produced by disposable cameras more.
4.) Would you be interested in shooting another roll?
Of course! I can’t wait to take more disposables on road trips to capture more amazing moments with friends.
5.) Is there anything else we could include or introduce to make the experience more interesting?
Not really, i feel the whole concept of this initiative is so genuine with an amazing purpose to capture the stillness and uniqueness of film.
6.) Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfie?
I’m not really a selfie person, i prefer to capture the natural aspects of the world around me, which is why i decided to capture a mirror selfie rather than a proper selfie to allow me to still incorporate my surroundings. However, i feel with future disposables i will embrace the selfie into my rolls to capture even greater moments.
7.) What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
The outcomes always make me feel happy because i love the contrast and quality that film produces. I also feel it gives a different aspect to the memories already implanted in my head.
8.) Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
I feel in my future rolls i might attempt to capture more of the people in the world around me. Capture them as they are in a genuine form, still and on film.
9.) Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
Yes i would, but i am perfectly content entering moments into the concept without reward for the chance to display and also observe other images of the world around others is enjoyable in itself.
10.) Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment.
If they are deserving, Yes!
11.) Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
Thank you for allowing me to capture and share the world around me.
