Collodion test / Which one is the best? / E:78

leave a comment »


.
In this vlog I’m breaking a myth about contrast in collodion photography. It does not exist. You can make whatever contrast you like with (almost) whatever collodion. Less exposure more development will cause higher contrast and vice versa. In Film photography the same principle is known as pull / push process in the film developing stage.

PS: sorry, I forgot to check my audio levels.

My favourite collodion is Osterman’s standard collodion
4ml of water
3 gr of CdBr2
4 gr of KI
140 ml of alcohol

140 ml ether
220 Collodion 4% USP quality

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

Screenshot 2019-04-02 09.53.20

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.

If you wish to learn this noble topshit craft, I have a workshop every month. Visit: http://www.topshitphotography.com/
