Here is my new vlog, I finished it, uploaded and hit the road for Paris. I hope you will like the prints and the drone footage. I’m sure you’ll love Brina as a host. She have broke her lip thus she has a funny lisp. In November huge things are happening. Hopefully I will get payed soon for two big commercial jobs I’ve done and that money will go straight into publishing the book A Father’s Tale. Timing is super tight, but it’s my life’s wish and I don’t mind not sleeping for the whole month 😉

Anyway topshit happens and thank you for your attention!

How to remove silver nitrate stains

with 2 comments

Dear followers,

I’ve finally find a way how to remove silver nitrate stains. Now I’ve removed so many stains that it’s ridicules. I didn’t had any issues, but Astrid did tried it once and ruined her favourite pants. So test it before using it. If this tip saved dozen pieces of your cloths and you are considering of giving me a tip every month, then today is your happy day! Just click www.patreon.com/borutpeterlin and pay me a cup of tea every month. I am very grateful for it.

Topshit happens,

Borut

New work from “Feels Like Home” project

Dear followers,
As you will notice, this video took me very long time to complete. Except the outro footage in the atelier, I’ve made it already a week ago, but it took me quite a while to finish it. Well, it’s here and I’m very satisfied with it. Video is a new medium for me and I am glad to receive a feedback from close friends, who have seen it unfinished, that they felt the peace that is the topic of my photography. I hope you will too. Leave a comment and subscribe to my YouTube channel, my FB page, my Instagram and this blog, of course!
Because Topshit does happen!!!!

An apocalypse and a Woodland Beyond Photography 2017 event

leave a comment »

In this vlog I’m publishing two major things that happened to me. One is an ecological catastrophe when a recycling centre Ekosistemi caught fire. About half a million tons of plastic burned. I’m living about a kilometre away and we had to move away for two days until air came back. The drone shots were done illegally, without permission of authorities by my friend Manfred von Richthofen and the images were used by police, national TV, commercial TV, and almost all national newspapers and on-line media. On FB those images were shared more then 1000 times. Images were free of charge as long as the publication is dealing with the catastrophic event and about raising ecological awareness.

Second thing was the Woodland Beyond Photography event. This time was the second year in a row that we organised an artist retreat deep in woodland where we created what we do best – ART. It was great time away from civilisation, enjoying art and socialising. Next year we will make five day event, so book the dates between 25th and 29th of July 2018!

I thank the company of Gozdno gospodarstvo Novo mesto for their support and David Cutter music for his music. Doors’s music is copyrighted and the copyright owner will be payed too.

The whole show of Poletna scena on national TV is available on THIS LINK.

I THANK MY PATREONS for their support! Please consider a monthly tip for my videos. My goal is to publish videos weekly, perhaps few times a week and your help will be very welcome. Thank you!

Photo project: PEACE / Vlog #24

with 3 comments

 

Dear followers,

In this episode of Topshit Photography Vlog, I’m starting a new photographic project and I’m offering a glimpse into my creative process. I’m a caretaker of two cottages and eventually I’ll buy one. Before I’ll decide for the purchase I need to feel the space and how I function in it. And in this video I’ve started my photographic project that is a ritual of domestication of a living space. After a break of 21 year long relationship, I moved out of my house and to fight the feeling of failure I’ve started to make flower bouquets and photographing them and by doing that I’m creating a ritual of finding beauty in the living space that I find myself in, my appreciation of opportunity to be there.

About my blog. Oh, I’ve just realised I’ve missed the 10th anniversary of publishing on my blog and I’ve also missed 3000th post on my blog. Oh, well I guess I have to aim for 20th anniversary…
