1.) How did you find out/come across Indisposable Concept?
2.) How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera? Enjoyable or painful?
It was difficult. I love the results, and I love the freedom of just pointing and shooting without worrying about settings, however not being able to see the photos immediately frustrated me. I guess it was good for testing my patience, and it stopped me from retaking photos which I frequently do. Overall I loved it, even the wait was worth it.
3.) 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?
FRUSTRATING! I didn’t realise how much it would affect me, but man… It really goes to show what a control freak I am. Every time I took a photo, I was curious about what it looked like and I had to be patient and wait until they were developed. It definitely tested my patience, so it was a good lesson really.
4.) From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
I love the photo of the blue Cactus Reef at Cactus Country, Strathmerton, Vic. It just looks so peculiar, and it really helps me remember how whacky that place was. I love that it really does look like some type of under the sea world, as it is meant to resemble.
5.) Would you be interested in shooting another roll?
6.) Is there anything else we could include or introduce to make the experience more interesting?
I think it’s pretty great as it is!
7.) Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfie?
It was kinda hard, I prefer taking photos of others, but it is a funny memory to have.
8.) What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
I was so happy! Sure, it’s not my best work but for my first time using a disposable camera, I couldn’t be happier! Love how nostalgic they look instantly!
9.) Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
Yeah, I’ll probably try a disposable to a festival (I wish I took it to Falls Fest!) or to a nightclub just to try a different vibe rather than the adventure vibe this roll had.
10.) Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
I think that’s a great idea! If it was just a once off though, turning the whole concept into a competition probably isn’t wise, but if there was a chance to snap some disposables for a chance to win a comp, I’d be there!
11.) Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment?
That would be a dream come true!
12.) Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
Keep doing what you’re doing! 😀
