Uf, this day are fleeing as crazy. I’ll try to make short posts with lots of images. With Miša Keskenović we had a workshop of Wet Plate Collodion in Trieste and few days later I had a demonstration of Wet Plate Collodion photography in Maribor. Last but not least I’m running a class on collodion photography on VIST college. What I am trying to say is that my life is evolving around Wet Plate Collodion photography and I must say I’m enjoying immensely. It just takes so much time… Today I started to work on a real proper photographic personal project and in four hours I’ve shot like four perfect photographs. It takes a lot of time and patience to make it perfect, but that’s as I call it zen thing. With Miša we have next workshop on Fotopub festival in Novo mesto, Slovenia between 25 till 28 of July 2012. It’s going to be for four days and we accept only 10, maximum 12 people, no more! The fee is 250EUR and that includes material costs. Hurry, I know this will be sold out before the deadline.
PS: Pictures from the workshops are taken by Branimir Ritonja (MB) and Dr. Photo (TR)

I have a workshop on portrait photography in Ribnica, Slovenia and since it’ll be in Slovenian, I’m publishing invitation in Slovenian language, or as JC would say, in Communism language.
Every January I panic! No money, no jobs, phone is dead! But then February comes and I feel like my services are needed. It feels great, like I would have a real job! After a depressing January an avalanche of requests for my workshops happen. My first one was a week ago in Dobova and today I’m starting a series of workshops in Novo mesto. This two were closed workshops, but in a month or so it will be a workshop open for everybody on portrait photography in Ribnica, Slovenia. It will be one day workshop with very low tuition fee, somewhere between 80 and 100EUR, but I’ll tell you more in next few days. Beside that I’ll start teaching at VIST higher school and at Visoka šola za umetnost UNG. So rock and roll February!
This week I was at Academy of Fine Arts Novi Sad in Serbia, where they had Startfest festival, a workshop of pioneer photography techniques. Mentors Miša Keksenović and Uglješa Dapčević were teaching us Wet Plate Collodion technique and also demonstrated other techniques like Salt print, Albumen printing, ambrotype, cyanotype and digital negative. This Wet Plate Collodion is really complex process. Not only that chemicals are flammable, poisonous, cancerogenous, acid,… also characteristics of solutions are constantly changing. For example, young prepared collodion that is up to a week old demands much less exposure, but it’s much less contrasty and a collodion that is old about a month produce bests results, but it demands longer exposures. Of course you can add a chemical that I don’t know what’s an English word for it and you speed up the process of aging, but again loosing quality. We learn so much, but as I’ve warned Mišo and Uglješa, it is very possible that in a week or so I’ll ring to their doors, asking for help
Above I’m publishing my Wet Collodion Process – Tintype photographs taken with 100y old Kodak Folding Brownie. HERE is a post where I got it. Below are images of students that were exhibited on a final show at the Academy. Mišo even created a lens from a single lens just to demonstrate how simple photography can be. Check an image on the slideshow bellow that have a lens taped on a wall. Fascinating indeed! Thank you Mišo, Uglješa, Ivana Tomanović & the Academy staff and students. It was epic as Lucija would say!
PS: Hoover over an image to read a caption. If you want to see larger image, right click and “open image in new tab”. I’ll organize their workshop also in Slovenia but don’t know when, probably in the beginning of next year. If you want to organize their workshop in your country, I’ll pass them your contact. You have mine on my site www.borutpeterlin.com
I’m at workshop at Academy of Fine Arts Novi Sad in Serbia learning how to do Wet Collodion Plate photography. I brought my Kodak Brownie with me and I’m surprised how good it works although it’s about 100 years old. HERE is a post that I’ve wrote when I got it, but then I never took time to figure out how it works. Rightly so, because on the workshop I’ve learned that that some silver nitrate is so dangerous that a drop in your eye will blind you forever. That’s why we work with safety goggles. Above I’m publishing my second Tintype photograph and the slideshow is from the workshop of Uglješa Dapćević and Mišo Keskenović. If you’re interested in this kind of workshop in Slovenia, rate this post and comment. It would be great to have a feedback.
