Paper Negative Experiment / Vlog #49

with one comment

.

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.

How much does Wet Plate Collodion cost?

leave a comment »


.
In this vlog I’m shedding new light onto the myth that the wet plate collodion process is a very expensive hobby. It can be, but it doesn’t have to be. In the end I haven’t done all the maths, but I reckon that with 300 EUR you can buy the Brownie, tripod and all the chemistry to make 50 plates or more. THX!

If you appreciate this kind of content and you would like me to do more of it, I would appreciate your support through buying my book or becoming my patreon.

Scusa, I’ve been away for a long time. I’ve took kids to Paris for a week then I had workshops in Vienna. The group workshop was organised by http://www.zigutamve-photography.at/ and then I had two private workshops.

Now I’m moving my atelier and designing furniture for it. Totally hipped with the project and I am going to include all the knowledge I have in the interior design of the atelier. And of course I’m going to share it with you!

Thank you for watching! Subscribe, share, like, leave a comment, but nevertheless, please do not forget… Topshit happens!

Exhibition in Vienna / Topshit Photography Vlog #36

leave a comment »

Life takes time, I tell you! This vlog is quite eclectic from posting books, fixing my car, making some albumen prints, having exhibition opening in Vienna and most importantly, having fun with kids!

In my following week I’m getting new atelier. It’s going to be topshit indeed! It’s going to be at a railway station! 50 meters from beautiful river bank and I’m planning to have one or two wagons in front of it. The wagons will be a gallery space. On top of that our house is about to be sold, so I will buy a cottage in woodland.

That and lots more in the next episode of Topshit Photography Vlog!

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
