Paper Negative Experiment / Vlog #49

with one comment

.

Dear followers,

the results from this experiment has surprised me. I’ve used old compact camera, Kodak Folding Brownie 3A and silver-gelatin paper as a negative. On the end I’ve got this amazing print that I’m also listing on eBay. I’m sorry for not containing my excitement, but I’m an artist, I’m allowed to do that. Anyway even if you are not an artist, I hope you will like this vlog. I’ve been working on it for the whole week, but I think it was worth it.

I’ve listed the print on eBay and the listing is in two options, with or without the mat. The print is in both cases the same quality.

Please share with me your experience with paper-negative and if you have some suggestions what should be the theme of my future vlogs, please share that too.

Thank you for watching and helping me spreading topshit across the world!

 

PS: I’ve took down the EBay listing. I’ve changed my mind, it’s not on sale.

How much does Wet Plate Collodion cost?

leave a comment »


.
In this vlog I’m shedding new light onto the myth that the wet plate collodion process is a very expensive hobby. It can be, but it doesn’t have to be. In the end I haven’t done all the maths, but I reckon that with 300 EUR you can buy the Brownie, tripod and all the chemistry to make 50 plates or more. THX!

If you appreciate this kind of content and you would like me to do more of it, I would appreciate your support through buying my book or becoming my patreon.

.

Here is a short vlog from this month. I’ve had three workshops and they were all successful, with great results. Participants were from USA, Italy, Austria and Slovenia. Small group of three is perfect for these slow hand made photographical processes.

In the future I’m planning to do more didactical videos on wet plate collodion process and analogue photography on general.

Thank you for your attention and let us not forget…

Topshit happens!

Dear followers,

this vlog is very different then my usual ones, so I ask for your opinion if you want more of this kind too, or would you prefer more about my professional eclectic vlog? Either case I am going to do both kind of vlogs, but I am wondering if this “talking head” format of the vlog contains enough useful information on the expense of entertainment? Or perhaps you prefer this kind of vlogs, to share a view in my creative thinking and how am I getting inspired from books and art works on general.
Thank you for your feedback. I wish you a pleasent moment, here and now.
Borut

Dear followers,

The 1st of May – the Labour Day is still a big holiday in Slovenia. On  the 30th of April we’re celebrating the resistance day and 1st and 2. of May we are celebrating Labour Day, so kids and parents have a mini holidays. On the 1st of May we’ve made this video. The main purpose was that kids have fun and oh, we did had such a great time. Especially when the fondue was made and ready to be eaten.

I’m attaching the first part of our joined project. Enjoy!
