1.) How did you find out/come across Indisposable Concept?
I found out about Indisposable Concept from my boyfriend who is passionate about photography and had the amazing idea to try it out.
2.) How did you find the experience of using the disposable camera? Enjoyable or painful?
For me, the experience was more than enjoyable! I had so much fun taking photos of what I found beautiful or important during our trip to Vama Veche, Romania. Knowing that I had a limited number of photos made me appreciate them more.
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?
At first it sounded a bit scary, but then I got used to the idea and I got caught up in the moment, trying to enjoy the photos rather then to perfectionize them.
4.) From your roll of film what was your fave image and why?
My favourite photo is img565,where you can see a group of people heading towards a house. You can see the motions and the dynamics of the photo. I love it because it includes the people I love, my friends and my boyfriend, that I spent some amazing days with in Vama Veche. They were all heading towards my vacation house, where we lived for a short period of time. The photo looks both happy and sad at the same time, showing closeness and melancholy intertwined.
5.) Would you be interested in shooting another roll?
Yes, definitely! I will repeat the experience as soon as possible.
6.) Is there anything else we could include or introduce to make the experience more interesting?
Maybe some photography categories.
7.) Did you enjoy the aspect of shooting a selfie?
It was a bit harder than shooting a normal photo but clearly more fun.
8.) What did you think of the outcomes when you saw the final photos?
I had no expectations as it was the first time I use an indisposable camera. When I saw the photos I was shocked, they turned out better than I thought they would!
9.) Would you approach the concept differently if you had another go?
I would try the “1 photo per day” concept as well. I think it is interesting to highlight each day with only one photo.
10.) Would you enter into the concept if it was set up in a competition format with prizes to be won?
The idea of a competition never even popped up in my head, as for me, this concept was a fun and relaxing way to spend my time in a vacation. I think the idea of a competition would have put more pressure on individuals, making the experience less enjoyable and more competitive.. But I think I would have joined anyway, as I love the idea of taking photos with an indisposable camera.
11.) Would you like to see your photos presented in a gallery exhibition environment?
If they were worth it, of course, maybe one day.
12.) Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
The Indisposable Concept was an interesting and fun activity, that will forever remain important for me. It made me appreciate life more, every single moment of it.
