.

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!

I’m publishing a photo book “A Father’s Tale” and this is the second vlog on the topic. I’m going through several photo books, discussing the patterns of photo editing and explaining what is inspiring for me and what is not.

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!!!!

Daughter facing future

leave a comment »

20170224_8144Oh, I am so happy for this photograph I’ve created! And it’s a portrait of Brina, of my youngest daughter that does not want to be photographed very often! And she has a birthday today, she is 10 years old! Exactly on today’s date, ten years ago she took her first breath and joined us on our path of life.

In the video I’ve explained almost everything. I wanted to discuss the composition, but on the end I did not. When photographing I was in dilemma if I want her facing left or right. It would be more natural to be facing right, in the direction that we read a photograph. When I say we, I mean westerners, we read written word from left to right, that is why it would be more natural that she would face right. But on the end I’ve decided that she should face left. Because of her posture, standing brave, facing something that is out of the frame. But we see the thorns surrounding her. But she glows, she is surrounded by white back-light.

For us who know Brina well, we know how suitable is this portrait of her. She is really a fighter. Boys do not want to mess around with her because she knows how to punch. Of course I have thought her how to defend herself. I told both of my daughters that they will not go out on a date before they will not demonstrate how to use elbows and knees in self defence. Yep, that is our Brina! I’ve listed the print on eBay (link).

Silver chloride gelatin paper, a contact copy from my collodion negative.I have an art student from Barcelona here, her name is Ana and she is assisting me. First week we had basic darkroom techniques and the second week she is already printing contact copies from collodion negative on silver-chloride paper and split toning them. I’ve listed that print on eBay too.
