New plates from A New Earth wet plate collodion project

leave a comment »

Dear viewers, here is the new work for my project A New Earth. Inspired by the work of Ana Mendieta and the philosophy of Eckhart Tolle and Alan Watts, I’m camping in the forest for several days and I’m performing a ritual called wet plate collodion photography, glass plates, format 40x50cm or 16×20″.

Thank you for your attention, may the Topshit be with you!

In this episode I’m showing my guillotine shutter for my ultra large format camera, size 40x50cm. It was made already in December, but it wasn’t reliable at all and I needed lots of support from my friends.

Thanks to Anže Grabeljšek and Oto Žan.

Oto’s main business is slide reproductions and send him inquiry on the email: info@diasi.si and his website is http://www.diasi.si His website is at the moment only in Slovenian, but soon it will be in English.

Last two weeks I worked really a lot, but the vlog I’ve limited only to my passion for carbon printing. I’m already preparing for the new episode. Tonight suppose to be snowing and tomorrow morning I’m in the woodlands making plates!

Bushcraft Photography / Vlog #60

Screenshot 2019-04-02 09.53.20

In this part of Topshit Photography Vlog, I went to the woodland of Kočevski rog for two days and I did some collodion glass negatives and albumen prints. My main goal was to explore the possibility of staying away from the civilisation and still do my job as a professional photographer. In July 17th – 21st, 2019, I will organise an expedition with rafts down the river Krka and then in the woodland of Kočevski rog. The idea is that we make photography as we go. We don’t need a darkroom to make prints, we can do them in a tent in the middle of nowhere.

Anyway this experience was wonderful and in the future I will do that more often for longer periods of time.

Film developers Kodak D-76 vs. Rodinal vs. FX-1 vs.Pyrocat HD

leave a comment »

After the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, after the Matrix film triology, we finally have the triology on film developers! This vlog features two old developers, Rodinal and Kodak D-76 side by side with a new guns FX-1 and Pyrocat!

Oh, what a fortune that is! Enjoy the vlog and share your opinion on the topic, so others (me included) can learn from it. This research took way too much time and I do not know why I am always surprised on the amount of work that takes to make it through. But I’ve done it. I hope you will like it.

Film developers D-76, Rodinal, FX-1 and Pyrocat HD / Vlog 58

leave a comment »

In this vlog I’ve mixed film developers Kodak D-76, FX-1, Pyrocat HD and Rodinal. OK, I will mix Rodinal before I will use it.

If you want to skip to exact information, here is the table of contents: D-76 or ID-11 3:306:00 FX-1 6:1012:30 Pyrocat HD 12:3114:52

I don’t know why I started this series and why I am digging so deeply, but with my vlogs I want to learn too, so I am curious to see how FX-1 and Pyrocat will do in comparison to my usual film developing choice D-76. I am not sure if somebody is interested in that, but if I started it, I will also finish it. Hopefully in my next vlog this will be done.

But of course, I will keep on shooting and I will learn new things.
