1.) How did you find out/come across Indisposable Concept?
Through instagram, it was so long ago I can’t quite remember the specifics.
2.) How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera? Enjoyable or painful?
Really fun! Haven’t used one since I was a kid. I’m not really a flash user so having to think about and rely upon that was interesting.
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?
I only shoot film so I’m no stranger to not being able to see what I’m shooting. Not editing after was frustrating (wanted to keep things honest), there are a few I’d like to straighten or darken...
4.) From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
Hmm, I think it’s the shot of the “25” balloons, it came out almost exactly as I wanted it to.
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 themed contests could be really fun.
7.) Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfie?
Yeah I thought it was interesting and kind of challenging, wasn’t sure if the flash was going to totally blow out the mirror I was shooting into.
8.) What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
Happy with some, disappointed by some, the usual. Noticed my framing was off a bit from what I was seeing in the viewfinder and it seemed like the light weight of the camera was detrimental to keeping things level.
9.) Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
I feel like I have a better idea of the use and limitations of the built in flash, I wouldn’t try to shoot at night from a distance.
10.) Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
I would for sure.
11.) Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment?
12.) Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
Hoping to self publish a few photo zines this summer so be on the lookout for those!
