How to teach children photography

with one comment


.
Dear readers of my blog,
In this episode of Topshit Photography Vlog, I’m sharing with you my way of storytelling about photography. How to show in the simplest manner what is photography. Photography is a music of chemistry, physics and biology to which photographers are dancing!

Here is my vlog on paper negative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSkOjzINQAA&t=2s

If you appreciate it, share it with those who teach or are learning photography.

leave a comment »

.

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!

My Dream Darkroom – Topshit Photography Vlog 43

with 2 comments


.
I’m photographer all my life and I had many darkrooms. If I count only dedicated darkroom spaces, this is my fifth darkroom and with each one I’ve learned something new. This is my dream darkroom. It is functional, well equipped and it looks good, thus stimulating for making some beautiful art. Tomorrow (22.6.2018) I’m publishing the workshop calendar.

I could not done it without the help of Anže Grabeljšek , Peter Peterlin and Mateja Gašparin. Thank you!

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

An apocalypse and a Woodland Beyond Photography 2017 event

leave a comment »

In this vlog I’m publishing two major things that happened to me. One is an ecological catastrophe when a recycling centre Ekosistemi caught fire. About half a million tons of plastic burned. I’m living about a kilometre away and we had to move away for two days until air came back. The drone shots were done illegally, without permission of authorities by my friend Manfred von Richthofen and the images were used by police, national TV, commercial TV, and almost all national newspapers and on-line media. On FB those images were shared more then 1000 times. Images were free of charge as long as the publication is dealing with the catastrophic event and about raising ecological awareness.

Second thing was the Woodland Beyond Photography event. This time was the second year in a row that we organised an artist retreat deep in woodland where we created what we do best – ART. It was great time away from civilisation, enjoying art and socialising. Next year we will make five day event, so book the dates between 25th and 29th of July 2018!

I thank the company of Gozdno gospodarstvo Novo mesto for their support and David Cutter music for his music. Doors’s music is copyrighted and the copyright owner will be payed too.

The whole show of Poletna scena on national TV is available on THIS LINK.

I THANK MY PATREONS for their support! Please consider a monthly tip for my videos. My goal is to publish videos weekly, perhaps few times a week and your help will be very welcome. Thank you!

Visiting Oliviero Toscani in Tuscany

leave a comment »

 

In December I took a part of a workshop of Oil print process and it’s a photographic process that delivers a photograph that is a combination of photography and painting.

Wikipedia:
The oil print process is a photographic printmaking process that dates back to the mid 19th century. Oil prints are made on paper on which a thick gelatin layer has been sensitised to light using dichromate salts. After the paper is exposed to light through a negative, the gelatin emulsion is treated in such a way that highly exposed areas take up an oil-based paint, forming the photographic image.

The workshop was organised by Arezzo & Fotografia and conducted by Roberto Lavini. We enjoyed it very much and I will write more about the oil print process when I will master it. I’m planning to do a photographic project of reevaluating fairy tales and this process might be perfect.

Before the workshop I’ve visited Oliviero Toscani, the photographer who made UC of Benetton famous with his campaigns. I worked with Oliviero Toscani and Rocco Toscani in Fabrica, the research centre of communication by United Colors of Benetton  in year 2000 and 2001. I enjoyed a lot the company of Oliviero and Rocco, but I haven’t recorded much since the visit was mostly of personal nature. But what I can say is that many ideas are brewed, when creative people are enjoying sun, lunch and wine. I’m coming back, for sure.
