Another piece for my book Father’s Tale

On Sunday I had one hour time to spend with my daughter and we went to the river and I’ve done two wet plate collodion negatives and later albumen prints. If you are a wet plater, then you must appreciate that from time of our arrival and when I left it passed only 45 minutes. In that 45 minutes I’ve prepared my camera, compose the photo, sensitise a plate, expose it, develop it, repeat everything again, pack everything and I’ve left. This is really fast and thanks to my wetplate mobile and the workflow everything went smooth and perfect.

In search for my new studio place

Sorry guys, it passed quite some time from my last posting. I have been busy, I had a workshop in Florence, I took part of a workshop in Arezzo on oil-print, visit my friend and mentor Olivero Toscani, I had a talk in Berlin’s university, I got a job offer in Hamburg, while making a living. On Monday during the terrorist attack in Berlin I was in the neighbourhood. So I thank you for your patience and understanding. I hope I will publish another video before the end of the year. I wish you merry Christmas!

My pity hole…

with 14 comments

In this video I am contemplating my separation with my wife with who we had 21 year long relationship. It is a sad, but I do my best to deal with it.

PS: oh, I’ve just realized that I left room for misunderstanding. This cottage is just a place to contemplate my projects and store some things in the woodland. I do not live there! I have my own flat in the civilization!

Postcards for my patreons!

with one comment

Dear readers of my blog,
my videos and this blog is supported by wonderful people who donate me every month a certain amount of money. I have 38 pateons already and last time that I was in Berlin, where I had a workshop, I decidd to send top 25 patreons a poscard from Berlin. Unfortunately to write all the postcards it took me more then two hours and that time I didn’t had, so I’ve decided it to send postcards from home. I hope you received them.

Footprints of a ghost / Topshit Photography Vlog E04 S01

with 2 comments

 

It’s Sunday evening and yes, I’m going to make it! The new week and the new video is here. Not only video, more importantly the new albumen print is here! In the first episode of my VLOG I was talking about inspiration and manipulation in photography. I was talking about landscape photography, intervened with retouching. This is what I had in mind. Exactly this kind of imagery I had in mind. I want that my images will have this kind of feeling. The surreal factor must be settle, hardly noticeable, but very much present. Like invisible power of magnet. The story of this woodland is long, rich and very tragic, so I am going to dose it bit by bit. Just trust me, this all makes sense.

The print is listed on Ebay as an auction. Thank you for bidding. This listings are important for me. I’m professional photographer, I need to pay my bills and these videos take a lot of time, so to know that people out there are following my work and we share the same passion, that is a real drive for me. And every week I’m getting more and more followers and I know the trend will climb and I know I can and will offer more!

I love to make these videos. Collodion photography takes a lot of preparation and planning. There is very little spontaneity while working in collodion photographic process. That is why I love to do this videos. Nobody expect of me to make good videos, so I make them from shear pleasure. And flying drone among trees, that is really difficult. I have DJI Phantom 2, which is an old model, without sonar, tracking motion camera and other sophisticated devices. In forest GPS signal is very poor, so drone is drifting in all directions and all the lights are blinking red, meaning do not take off, but I do take off and fly among trees. I haven’t crashed it yet, but I know I will one day. So please do bid on that print, now, before is too late! 😉

COMING SOON….
For the next week I will reconstruct my personal darkroom, I have new sink. I have a client who want’s me to make an ambrotype for him, so I will do that. I already have an idea where to photograph for my project. On Saturday I’m taking a part of a workshop on picking wild food in woodland with Dario Cortese. If you are in Slovenia, check THIS LINK. On Sunday I’m preparing for the Woodland Photography Retreat. I’m organising an event for colleagues organisers and volunteers. We will visit all the locations, do some events and enjoy the company. In the middle of woodland my 9 year daughter will do a workshop of cyanotype for kids. She makes really amazing cyanotypes and she will teach other children. Now I go to bed. I feel exhausted, but satisfied. It was a good, very good week and I look forward of Monday. Very happy to be alive!
