akiremae Words cannot espresso how much this view makes me happy. Obviously didn't get my cup of joe. Anyway, give me some reading materials. I'm breaking up with Netflix and ready for some summer book lovin'. 15h
  •   heartforhugs @akiremae ohhhh yes. A break is a wise choice. 4h
  •   akiremae @velviamax thanks so much! 22min
  •   akiremae @rita_meunsaveng anything with positive feels! Haha I've been watching a lot of dark, crime, and drama on Netflix. I need some inspiration as well. And yes! My work schedule blows lately, but I will be taking a couple weeks on end of June/ beginning of July. Hope we can at least grab coffee before that. We can adventure during my time off! 18min
  •   akiremae @heartforhugs it's been keeping me cooped up. I need to go outside more! Any book recommendations? 16min

akiremae Liberosis (Obscure Sorrow)

n. the desire to care less about things—to loosen your grip on your life, to stop glancing behind you every few steps, afraid that someone will snatch it from you before you reach the end zone—rather to hold your life loosely and playfully, like a volleyball, keeping it in the air, with only quick fleeting interventions, bouncing freely in the hands of trusted friends, always in play. Shot on Hasselblad 501C Fuji Pro 400H. #filmisnotdead

akiremae Just a few weeks ago, I launched a website for my creative work.. BUT now I'm finding myself struggling to stay motivated. Haha all new beginnings start this way right?! Shot on Pentax 67 with Fuji Pro 400H. #filmisnotdead #TheDarkroomLab_NewBeginnings @thedarkroomlab 1mon

akiremae I've recently experimented with pushing black and white Kodak Tri-X 400 to 800, 1600, and 3200. I failed terribly with the 3200 roll and will have to give it another go. Out of the 10 photos, this is probably the only one that I liked. BUT then again how can I not like anything with these two in it?! Shot on Pentax 67 with Kodak Tri-X 400 pushed to 3200. #filmisnotdead
I've you've pushed film before... Drop some knowledge below. I'd appreciate it!

  •   akiremae @thedarkroomlab thanks so much! It was developed at a local lab. I typically develop my own rolls, but since bhphotovideo stopped shipping chemicals.. I've taken my color rolls to labs. I'm like 10 rolls backed up. 7d
