akiremae Once I woke up this morning and found that it was snowing... I first of all cried (yes tears of joy were very much involved) and gave my aunt a hug because of how stoked I was. Then I did this cliche where you know, I put some Christmas music on for my drive to work. Anyway, hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy the rest of the weekend. 3w

akiremae This is how I'm making my Saturday evening more exciting than it really is. I shot this roll back home while we were chilling at the West Side. Crossing my fingers it turns out because I could use reliving those moments again. I'll post one or two on my film account right away... Maybe. 2mon

akiremae Today marks one month of me being here. I often still miss my family, friends, especially Chance and Dale so much it hurts. I better end it there because this could go on for days. To everyone back home, wish you were all here but I do carry your smiles with me wherever I go. To the ones I've met here what a pleasure it's been to meet such kind souls.
P.S. Please have as much spicy ahi for me and tell me about it BUT don't be rude and send me a picture.

If you have a few moments to spare please go over to his bio and READ something. Oh and Vince, I kind of miss you too. 3mon

akiremae What a mess! Great day shooting with @spinphotoart and @usuallyfilm. We all shot a whole roll of black and white film. 3mon
  •   akiremae @xkaluluwax they sure are! 3mon
  •   mateosvw Yes! #filmisnotdead The camera in the lower left looks familiar. Is that a Pentax? I have one of them! 3mon
  •   akiremae @mateosvw Hmm I'm pretty sure it was the canon ftb. I want to know your film camera collection! Lol what do you have?! 3mon
  •   bspkyle @mateosvw definitely a Canon FTb 2mon
  •   akiremae @blackskyphoto thanks for confirming. You shoot with one? 2mon
  •   bspkyle @akiremae Yup. FTb is my main cam. Do you know what lens that is on the far left? Looks like a Canon 85mm f/1.2L for FD but I can't tell. 2mon
  •   akiremae @blackskyphoto Hmm I believe that one is wide angle. The one on the right mounted on the Canon eos1n is the 85 f/1.2L @usuallyfilm what lens is that again? 2mon
  •   usuallyfilm The lens on the far left is my 24-35 3.5L, one helluva lens on the F-1. 2mon

akiremae Beware! Just beware, Erica is intoxicating. Once you meet her you'll definitely get motivated to get out there and be inspired to shoot more. She's incredibly talented, kind, so creative, and down to earth! Grateful to have made a new friend and have someone to completely geek out about film! 3mon

akiremae Spon·ta·ne·ous // Such great vibes! I've been so shy to meet up with the ridiculously talented @spinphotoart that it's literally taken me about 3 weeks of building courage to. We met up at Kenmore Camera and ended up at a roof top in downtown Seattle for drinks where really shy me got to meet more great people! (@iamshpak @indie_writer @lisapeckuliar @stef_krach) I had an incredible night. Thank you all so much and so good meeting you all! @alohacrabs where you at?! 3mon

akiremae Currently sitting at Starbucks alone. During our road trip to Canada, I of course forgot to pack something important in which has taken a toll on me. Now that I'm feeling a lot better (aside from the mild homesick bug)... I'm planning to venture out tomorrow and I have yet to figure out where. Help? #honestcaptions 3mon

  •   jryanbanks I use that same graduate and recently found out that it is completely inaccurate. I purchased a 100ml syringe and filled that same graduate with exactly 1000ml from my syringe and the graduate measured 950ml. This explained why my negatives had been a just little under developed. I had been over diluting my developed. 2mon
  •   jryanbanks *over diluting developer 2mon
