In this vlog I’m sharing with you some of my experience about developing a wet plate collodion plate. I hope you will enjoy it. Sorry it wasn’t a short vlog. And I’ve skipped quite few non-essential things.

Publishing a Photo-Book!

leave a comment »


.
Ladies and gentleman,
I’ve pulled the leaver, thrown the dice, pushed the button, crashed the piggy bank, all that before I’ll kick the bucket. The printing process of my new book has started to roll and it’ll be working on it every day until it’s finished, presumably by the end of November 2019.

This is my first vlog in the series about the making of the book Light Mood. In this vlog I’m announcing the project and describing my concept and the basic thought processes how the photos were made and how I’m planning to approach the making of the book.

The pre-order of the book is available on my site:

Photobook / GRÉGORY DARGENT / Topsheet #74

leave a comment »

¸
.
I’m back from Paris and of course I’ve been shopping. The secondhand video tripod and the rail was 250 EUR and those three books were 170 EUR. Photobooks are expensive, but if I would have to choose either photobooks or the video tripod, I would chosen photobooks, that’s for sure. It’s such a beautiful piece of object, a photobook, don’t you think? I see many layers in each photobook, photographs inside, a cover page, a graphic design, editing, a concept, the way story has been told, rhythm in the book, printing quality, paper, smell of the ink, how does it feel holding in hands, weight, surface texture,… I could go on whole day about the charm of a photobook.

The book featured in this 74th vlog is by GRÉGORY DARGENT.

Published by Saturne Editions in 2018.

Printed on paper: Artic Volume Ivory 150g

Ultra Large Tintype on eBay!

with one comment


.
HERE is the eBay link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/223583573202

For this tintype I’ve shed some sweat, tears and blood. Mosquitoes are my witness! I have made few beautiful ambrotypes as well, but with this material at this temperature and humidity was just insanely to work with. On the end I’ve cracked all the problems and the result is in front of you. I have shared few insights, I hope it will be of some help to somebody. If you had the same problem, please share your experiences. I know few people who just stopped using that kind of aluminium.

OK, now back to work. I am planning to publish a new vlog tomorrow. Easy one, a photobook reaction vlog.

And big thank you to all of my patreons: https://www.patreon.com/borutpeterlin
