In this vlog I’m showing my ambrotypes commissioned by Alan Hranitelj, an amazing costume designer. The scans of ambrotypes I’ve digitally hand coloured. I hope you like the show.

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

Bushcraft Photography / Vlog #60

In this part of Topshit Photography Vlog, I went to the woodland of Kočevski rog for two days and I did some collodion glass negatives and albumen prints. My main goal was to explore the possibility of staying away from the civilisation and still do my job as a professional photographer. In July 17th – 21st, 2019, I will organise an expedition with rafts down the river Krka and then in the woodland of Kočevski rog. The idea is that we make photography as we go. We don’t need a darkroom to make prints, we can do them in a tent in the middle of nowhere.

Anyway this experience was wonderful and in the future I will do that more often for longer periods of time.

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.

Film developers D-76, Rodinal, FX-1 and Pyrocat HD / Vlog 58

leave a comment »

In this vlog I’ve mixed film developers Kodak D-76, FX-1, Pyrocat HD and Rodinal. OK, I will mix Rodinal before I will use it.

If you want to skip to exact information, here is the table of contents: D-76 or ID-11 3:306:00 FX-1 6:1012:30 Pyrocat HD 12:3114:52

I don’t know why I started this series and why I am digging so deeply, but with my vlogs I want to learn too, so I am curious to see how FX-1 and Pyrocat will do in comparison to my usual film developing choice D-76. I am not sure if somebody is interested in that, but if I started it, I will also finish it. Hopefully in my next vlog this will be done.

But of course, I will keep on shooting and I will learn new things.

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…
