When I take photographs with an older film camera, I hear two very specific sounds every time I decide to take the next photo. These sounds make the process of taking each one much more personalized and intimate for every frame. First the camera rattles a bit while advancing a frame of the film with the lever. Then, when I’m ready to take my photo, I get a very distinct and reassuring ‘click’ (older cameras usually make this sound when you release the shutter) and only then do I know I’ve taken it successfully. This sound assures me that I can move on to my next frame and repeat the process again.
