Self-Isolation art project – A New Earth

leave a comment »

 

As the pandemic is spreading throughout the world I’ve started my new project A New Earth. Inspired by the book of Eckhart Tolle I used the same title of my project and the words are originally from the Bible.

While being self-isolated, I’m nurturing peace, self-reflecting and breathing while making glass plates. I hope that the state of mind will successfully transcend through my art work. The ambrotype is one of a kind, I do not have a duplicate. I’m selling it so I can make the project rolling. Imagine that only for the silvernitrate bath I need 7 litres of 9% solution, which would cost on the market close to 1000 EUR. I’ve payed half the amount, because I’ve bought it directly from China, but still you get the idea. If this project will be successful as I imagine it to be, this plate will gain its value for sure. But that said if I don’t get the funds now, the project will not happen. So I believe I’m offering the best deal for the viewers, the buyer and myself.

About friends, alter ego and – oh – some wet plate photography

This vlog is again a photographer’s diary or actually only two topics. Plus some Land Rover maintenance. I hope you’ll find it fun. Let me know if you prefer silver-gelatin print from the negative or ambrotype (wet plate collodion positive). May the topshit be with you!

Feasting on the spatiousness of the forest / Vlog #61

leave a comment »

I had a huge plan what to include in the content of this vlog, but then I focused only on the visual storytelling and I applied my new knowledge of recording sound. I hope you will find it beautiful. Information is overrated anyway. My next vlog will follow with all the information I’ve skipped tonight.

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.

If you wish to learn this noble topshit craft, I have a workshop every month. Visit: http://www.topshitphotography.com/

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

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!

Transcending reality in wet plate collodion / Vlog E02, S01

leave a comment »


Dear followers,
as I’ve promised I’m publishing my third episode (I count also the episode zero) of my vlog while pursuing my goal to publish an artist photo-book.  Of course, the theme of my book will be Kočevski rog woodland and this time I went to one of the most beautiful places, Ponikve valley.

I was wondering how long should my vlog videos be and what should be the mix of entertainment and informative content. This is what I think it’s good. Please let me know your opinion. In each episode I will include a tip or two about the process, but the main topic will be artistic vision, composition, asking questions and the search for answers. Just don’t ask me to do camera review blogs, they are boring. Photography and cameras is like traveling and wheels. It is related, but not dependent upon. I will do a book review, here and there, but not one of those 100 famous photographers everybody know. I will rather do a review of work that nobody knows, like I’ve done from Peter Župnik, Herman Pivk and many others. Basically photographers whose quality does belong on top 100 list, but they will never be world famous photographers, because of circumstances.

I’ve described my intention in the previous blog post, but let me highlight that I haven’t realised before, but all the likes and shares are well important, since the large social network is the guarantee that my book will actually be published, so thank you in advance! So if you think this content is worthy, please press like and share it. If I’ve made your day, please you could buy me a cup of tea every month via my PATREON page and if you could afford, thank you for bidding on my Ebay auction.

The print on sale is an albumen print, toned with gold toner, from wet plate collodion negative. It’s listed on EBAY.
