Analogue Photography Sounds - Don't You Miss Them?

Director Lv Sisi, while at the Glasgow School of Art, made this week's Video Pick that lauds the sights and sounds of analogue photography. All the clicks, hums, and whirls from a collection of antique cameras are captured in this hip-hop, almost Bring-It-On drum corps piece that uses lots of stop motion technique with over 6,000 still photographs. Sisi (available on Twitter: @ft_jelly) observed that "speed and accessibility have come at the expense of mystery, intimacy, and tactility - qualities exclusive to analogue photography." Do you miss analogue's "the way we were"?

My favorite analog sound was loading 35mm black & white film onto a metal developing reel in the darkroom. If you handled this correctly it made a pleasant whoosing sound.

One of my warmest childhood memories was hearing my grandfather taking a photo of us using his Kodak Instamatic. We loved watching it develop too!

The thing I miss about analog photography is the time you have to kill when taking the best possible shot of an interesting subject.
Analogue photography is pretty old now, I think its already time to move on.

Dont' miss them at all. A camera is just a tool and not something that I get too excited about.
In fact, as primarily a wedding photographer, I would prefer quieter DSLRs.
