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.

Part one of the saga: (no darkroom): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxqCZ…

Part two (mixing chemistry): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tKbT…

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.

Hospital in the middle of woodland? Topshit Photography Vlog #57

with 2 comments


.
In this episode of Topshit Photography vlog, I’m taking you with me to my favourite place on the planet, woodland of Kočevski rog in the middle of Slovenia. I also did a film test with Hasselblad xPan, but that’s not impressive at all. The size of that bear was really impressive. Anyway I’ll develop those rolls in different developers and see what’s the difference. Expect the unexpected, because topshit happens!

My Dream Darkroom – Topshit Photography Vlog 43

with 2 comments


.
I’m photographer all my life and I had many darkrooms. If I count only dedicated darkroom spaces, this is my fifth darkroom and with each one I’ve learned something new. This is my dream darkroom. It is functional, well equipped and it looks good, thus stimulating for making some beautiful art. Tomorrow (22.6.2018) I’m publishing the workshop calendar.

I could not done it without the help of Anže Grabeljšek , Peter Peterlin and Mateja Gašparin. Thank you!

How to remove silver nitrate stains

with 2 comments

Dear followers,

I’ve finally find a way how to remove silver nitrate stains. Now I’ve removed so many stains that it’s ridicules. I didn’t had any issues, but Astrid did tried it once and ruined her favourite pants. 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

New work from “Feels Like Home” project

leave a comment »

 

 

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!!!!
