Zhang Xiao - 张晓

What was your first shot ?

The first thing I photographed was my girlfriend.

How did your work, idea evolve ?

Because the timing was rather tight and it was my first time using this type of camera, I was entirely uncertain of how the resulting photographs would turn out. I just sort of fumbled around and photographed. I had no concept or idea beforehand. I simply recorded the things happening around me on a daily basis, a sort of statement.

Are you happy with the result ?

I am very happy with the results on the Silver Shade B&W film. With the Color Shade film I had some issues, but this is likely because I don't have experience using it.

What's next ?

The next step is to get further acquainted with the characteristics of this camera and film. Also, I need to think about a more fitting subject/theme for me working with this camera.
