Paper Negative Experiment / Vlog #49

with 2 comments


Dear followers,

the results from this experiment has surprised me. I’ve used old compact camera, Kodak Folding Brownie 3A and silver-gelatin paper as a negative. On the end I’ve got this amazing print that I’m also listing on eBay. I’m sorry for not containing my excitement, but I’m an artist, I’m allowed to do that. Anyway even if you are not an artist, I hope you will like this vlog. I’ve been working on it for the whole week, but I think it was worth it.

I’ve listed the print on eBay and the listing is in two options, with or without the mat. The print is in both cases the same quality.

Please share with me your experience with paper-negative and if you have some suggestions what should be the theme of my future vlogs, please share that too.

Thank you for watching and helping me spreading topshit across the world!


PS: I’ve took down the EBay listing. I’ve changed my mind, it’s not on sale.

  1. Thanks for this vlog, Borut. I’ve been experimenting making portraits with 8×10 paper negatives for a couple years now but exposure has been a big problem. Too much contrast! I’m using Pentax spot meter with ASA of 5. Still no control! Negative developer or very dilute paper developer is my next experiment, thanks to you.

    Your vlog style is pretty breezy but fun, I like it. Except watching you chew. 🙄 But you are clearly passionate about image-making so we are on the same wavelength. Best, lj evans

  2. Hi Borut, Texas Tom again. This blog has inspired me to try the paper negatives. I watched is again yesterday and realized that it’s been exactly a year since you posted it. And although it must have been a pain in your butt slipping and falling on the grassy slope, your catching the tripod was smooooth brother!
    Keep up the great work!
