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.

New work from “Feels Like Home” project

Dear followers,
As you will notice, this video took me very long time to complete. Except the outro footage in the atelier, I’ve made it already a week ago, but it took me quite a while to finish it. Well, it’s here and I’m very satisfied with it. Video is a new medium for me and I am glad to receive a feedback from close friends, who have seen it unfinished, that they felt the peace that is the topic of my photography. I hope you will too.

Because Topshit does happen!!!!

Photo project: PEACE / Vlog #24

with 3 comments

 

Dear followers,

In this episode of Topshit Photography Vlog, I’m starting a new photographic project and I’m offering a glimpse into my creative process. I’m a caretaker of two cottages and eventually I’ll buy one. Before I’ll decide for the purchase I need to feel the space and how I function in it. And in this video I’ve started my photographic project that is a ritual of domestication of a living space. After a break of 21 year long relationship, I moved out of my house and to fight the feeling of failure I’ve started to make flower bouquets and photographing them and by doing that I’m creating a ritual of finding beauty in the living space that I find myself in, my appreciation of opportunity to be there.

Ghost Window in wet plate collodion

with 3 comments

Dear followers,

This vlog should be published earlier, but I am missing three of my cameras. All small ones, like analogue compact Rollei camera, GoPro 3+ and Nikon J5 cameras. I have no idea what happened to them. In 30 years I have not lost a camera. I almost did, but never really. This small cameras were in my bag and I was carry them always with me. It might be that I forgot my backpack somewhere, but is more likely that someone took it out of my car. Today’s thieves do not need to brake a window, to get in your car. When I went to Prague I was resting on a rest stop and a thief silently broke in my car, without leaving any damage or signs. He did this while I was resting in the car! But then I woke up and he fled. Without steeling anything. So it might be that it was stolen or not. I do not know. Too many things happening in my life right now and this is the price to pay. Although this event is annoying it does not put me off. In fact that is why I bought Nikon J5, because I didn’t want to use the almighty and all expensive Nikon D4! Imagine that would happen with my Nikon D4 and my expensive lenses!

Anyway… Here is my latest vlog where I continue working on my book A Father’s Tale. A photo-book is not an album of images. It is a sequence of images carefully narrated through each page. Just like when music notes are containing parts that are actually bringing the orchestra to quit down or even to a complete stop, also photo-book must have parts in the book where an eye will relax, digest, reflect.

My idea is that the photo-book of my daughters should contain images that on information level do not tell you anything about them, but the images are containing certain mood that is bringing the viewer’s attention away from the information level and building the story on emotional level.

So that is why I’ve decided to photograph this window. I could ask one of my daughters to stand there or even I could stand by the window, but I’ve decided to keep it calm and simple. It is just one image in the book, but important one.

I hope you will like the image and the video. Please subscribe and share. My plan is to build up large enough social network and sell my books directly to my audience. And/Or with the large enough social network, main stream publishers will be interested in publishing the book. So thank you for subscribing to my YouTube channel, to my blog, to FB page and to my Instagram.
