Carbon prints for my supporters

leave a comment »

In this vlog I’ve shared with you some workflow of mine and how I’ve created these beautiful carbon prints. I wanted to send to my patreons the best print I could do and of course carbon print is the best printing process ever invented. But it’s also one of the slowest processes, so I had to figure out how to make multiple prints at the same time. The solution was to take many frames of the same motive. Let me confess that the road in the fog frame didn’t happen, due to a really expired film. I still left it in the vlog, to show you how am I composing the frame and how am I searching for the best frame. I hope you’ll like the vlog, please share and recommend the channel to others.
You may buy one these or some other print or a book. Tomorrow I’m offering also the Black Friday discount.

After a very long time, a TopshEEt Photography vlog, a photomagazine reaction. I’ve done this a s a test how long will it take me to make this reaction video and my estimate was few hours and now, it’s Sunday 23:22 and I’m happy I’ve done it at lease in a week time. Sure, I have a good excuse, I had a birthday, ha, ha, it’s true. Anyway I hope you like it at least as much as I like the magazine.

A beautiful lens cabinet for beautiful lenses! Vlog #101

with 3 comments

In this vlog I’m finishing the job I’ve started about half a year ago! I’ve used an old window from my grandparent’s house and turned it into a beautiful lens cabinet and even more beautiful memory of my grand parents. The boxes I’ve bought from a beekeeper three years ago and I knew time will come to use them and here they are. I’m really happy how it turned out. May the topshit be with you, Borut

100th Topshit Photography Vlog / New Big Glass Negatives

leave a comment »

New work from my fine art project A New Earth. The work is inspired by the art of Ana Mendieta and philosophy of Eckhart Tolle and Alan Watts. This is my 100th vlog, I’ve opened this channel in 2006 and I’m blogging from 2003 ( http://www.borutpeterlin.wordpress.com ) and I have published already more than 150 vlogs (can’t find the exact number). Don’t ask me why the number is only 100, I forgot, ha, ha, ha… Topshit strategy, I guess. Anyway I hope you will enjoy the serenity of the project. It’s my walking meditation. I think the first stage of the project is finished. Now I need to make few carbon prints, review all the work done until now and draw some projections where is this is going. More about that in the 101th vlog. Thank you for your attention, may the Topshit be with you!

A New Earth Photography project, my new dog friend, vlog #91

with one comment


.

In this vlog I’m featuring:

1) My new dog Vintage or Winch for short
2) My new plate from the project A New Earth
3) Vegan goulash

1) My new dog is a female black longhair German Shepherd by the name of Vintage or Winch for short. At the moment she is two months old and weighs 6 kilograms. She is very smart and an amazing guard dog. Her father is a police dog and just like her father she has an amazing smell. During the time in the woodland, she smelled out a bear. She started to bark in the forest and started to shake, hiding under the car. She understood the danger and warned me immediately. I haven’t seen the bear, but I did hear footsteps in the bush. No worries, on those expeditions I encounter a bear or they meet me every single time, that’s why I need a good guard dog with me.

2) A New Earth is an art project dealing with the New Deal with mother nature. My work is inspired by the art of Ana Mendieta, philosophy of Eckhart Tolle and Alan Watts. This plate is aesthetically very much inspired by Sally Mann’s art work Body Farm.

3) Vegan Goulash: – Lots of onion (the same amount as soya chunks) – Olive oil – I love adding a small tea spoon of good not too strong curry – Carrots about 1/3 of the amount of soya chunks – Sweet pepper – Soya chunks (the same amount as onion) – Tomato sauce or in my case I’ve used concentrated tomato. Sauce is better. – Salt, black pepper and some red hot chilli pepper – water You stir it and cook about 12-15 minutes. It could be longer or shorter, it depends how big are your soya chunks. Best is to serve it with cold polenta, but I had only one cooking kettle, so bread is just as good.

My friend’s last day

with 4 comments


.
Mike was a German shepherd, that I’ve bought from a very irresponsible owner at age of two. He was my faithful companion and he saved me numerous times by alarming me about the bear’s presence. Even five days before his death he alert me and stood in front of me while bear growled from the dark.

Mike will be missed.

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.

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.

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!
