Film developers Kodak D-76 vs. Rodinal vs. FX-1 vs.Pyrocat HD

leave a comment »

After the Lord of the Rings film trilogy, after the Matrix film triology, we finally have the triology on film developers! This vlog features two old developers, Rodinal and Kodak D-76 side by side with a new guns FX-1 and Pyrocat!

Oh, what a fortune that is! Enjoy the vlog and share your opinion on the topic, so others (me included) can learn from it. This research took way too much time and I do not know why I am always surprised on the amount of work that takes to make it through. But I’ve done it. I hope you will like it.

Part 2 / Kodak D-76 the most famous film developer

with one comment

OK, finally here is the second part of my research on the most famous developer Kodak D-76 also sold as Ilford ID-11. It took me way too much time and energy and resources, but I am happy with the results and I believe this case will shine some light and inspiration for younger generations of photographers who would like to work in analogue photography.

I’m listing the print on EBay as an auction, starting from 0,99$. Not to get payed for the work that I’ve done, but to finance the future vlogs that I have in mind. Thank you for your attention and hopefully also the bidding.

You may support me in various ways:

Become my patreon on Patreon.com
Bid on my print on EBay
Or directly pay me a cup of tea via Paypal.me

Either way, let us not forget…

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!
