WOODLAND PHOTOGRAPHY .eu

WHAT:
Woodland Photography .eu is three day event in deep forest of Kočevski rog in Slovenia. The main theme is photography and environmentalism, so you can expect photography expeditions, talks, projections, exhibitions, challenges and even performances. And of course bonfire with acoustic music.
It will last three days, in the last weekend of July 2016 and on the last day, Sunday 31st, it will be open for public. The core group will be around 50 people, but on the last day, Sunday 31st, local community will join us so we expect more then 300 people.
The accent of this event is to experience primal environment and primal photography. And although this will not be a workshop in classical sense of the term, there will be many demonstrations of 19th Century photography processes, like wet plate collodion, dry plate collodion negative, salt printing, albumen printing, carbon printing, cyanotype, lumen prints, large format photography,film photography, etc. And of course digital photography will be very much present. We will do time-lapse photography, photo-hunting with long telephoto lenses,…

Video from Photo Safari

This is video from our five day workshop on wet plate collodium negative with salt and albumen printing. It happened in August 2015 in Slovenia. The first day was introduction with first wet plate collodion negatives. Second day was raining, so we went to Studio Pelikan, one of the best preserved skylight studios in Europe, where we were making collodion negative portraits. Third day we were making salt prints, fourth day we went to shoot outdoor and had some rafting. On the last day we learned albumen printing and collodion chloride printing processes.
