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.

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…

That said, the active wetplaters will find this information worth its weight in gold, or should we say its weight in AgNO3! If you are looking for a workshop in wet plate collodion magic, please take a look on my site http://www.borutpeterlin.com/

I have new atelier!!! / VLOG #21

with 5 comments

I’m so happy that I finally got space for my atelier! I am overwhelmed. You will see, this is just my first week working in it. I can feel this is the milestone in my career. I’m planning to have workshops there, to have a library with photo-books, to do reviews of photo books and publish it daily and of course have my space of peace.
Topshit happens!
Thank you for all the support!

I broke my glass negative!!!

with one comment

Skuza me, but this video is pretty long, like 12 minutes, but I’ve been very productive the past month. I know, I should make three vlogs, but I just haven’t found time. Anyway, here is the new vlog and some images that I’ve listed on eBay.  Tomorrow very early morning I’m driving to Italian Gorizia, where I teach at University, hand made photography, of course, so this post will be super short. Short post and long video. Don’t forget to press like, subscribe and of course bid!

Thanks to my 50 patrons who are supporting me every month through the PATREON platform!

Another piece for my book Father’s Tale

On Sunday I had one hour time to spend with my daughter and we went to the river and I’ve done two wet plate collodion negatives and later albumen prints. If you are a wet plater, then you must appreciate that from time of our arrival and when I left it passed only 45 minutes. In that 45 minutes I’ve prepared my camera, compose the photo, sensitise a plate, expose it, develop it, repeat everything again, pack everything and I’ve left. This is really fast and thanks to my wetplate mobile and the workflow everything went smooth and perfect.
