How to teach children photography

with 2 comments


.
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.

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?

.
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!

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
