division – a portrait made with non – visible light

I have the feeling people are more and more divided these days, thats the reason I created these portraits.



With these portraits I show the division in visual form. On the left side the blindfold is blocking the sight – people can not see clearly, the faded tattoos are standing for a faded reality and the fist shows anger and caginess.
Where on the right side you see eyes that see through the blindfold, high contrast tattoos and an open hand that is ready to help and hug.
This images is also part of our new Album in the United Art Gallery:
https://unitedart.gallery/albums/justice-for-all-inspired-by-black-lives-matter/ You can join us with your own art about this topic. Just click the “be a part of it” and choose the topic you want to submit to.



I shot the first portrait with the wet collodion process (Sensible to UV light only) and with a digital infrared camera. The second portrait was shot with a Rollei Ortho 25 Film (Sensible to UV light only) and a Rollei Infrared 400 film. In UV light everything that is blue will get bright and red dark. Because tattoos often contain blue color they get brighter and the red blindfold gets black. In IR light it is the opposite, thats why you can see through the blindfold and get contrasty tattoos.

Thanks again to Alex and Bernhard for helping me, as you can see in the video, there were a lot of tasks to do in a short amount of time to bring this portrait to live

I miss hugs



click or scroll down for the English version

Mir fehlen Umarmungen oder das Händeschütteln – Es ist schon zwei Monate her, als ich das letzte Mal meine Mutter umarmen konnte…
Das war der Auslöser dieser Kollodium-Nassplatte.
Wenn ihr auch selbst an Coronavirus-Kunstprojekten arbeitet, dann teilt eure Ergebnisse mit der United Art Gallery – https://unitedart.gallery – einfach den “be a part of it” button klicken.




I need hugs

In der Gallery könnt ihr sehen wie ich auf mich selbst fokussiert habe und wie ich die modifizierte Steckblende für mein Dallmeyer Petzvalobjektiv erstellt habe.

English version

I miss hugs, handshaking and all the other social habits. Haven’t hugged my mum for two month now. That’s how I came up with the idea of this collodion wet plate. This is the 5th plate of my coronavirus series, if you work on a covid19 art project yourself, consider joining out United Art Gallery: https://unitedart.gallery – check it out and click the “be a part of it” button to participate.


I need hugs

I had to be creative to focus on myself and I had to create a c shaped waterhouse stop for my Dallmeyer Petzval lens to archive the c-shaped bokeh. see how I did it in the gallery:

Swirly Petzval bokeh and lens support part I

click or scroll down for the English version

Um auch 30x40cm Platten mit einem Swirl versorgen zu können, kaufte ich mir ein neues Petzval Objektiv (330mm F4). Da dieses auch mehr Gewicht hat, mußte ich eine Objektivunterstützung für meine Kamera bauen. Nach erfolgreichen Designen einer Lösung, belohnte ich mich selbst mit einen Selbstportrait. Beides könnt ihr in dem nachfolgenden Video sehen

English version

to be able to shoot 30x40cm swirly portraits, I got myself a new Petzval lens (330mm F4). There was just one issue with it – the lens was heavy. That was the reason I designed myself a lens support system for my camera. After I completed this task, I treated myself with a swirly self portrait. And yes, I did also a video about it.

Ich freue mich schon sehr auf das Ergebnis, dass er in einem Video präsentieren wird. Danach werden wir die digitale und die analoge Nassplattenversion miteinander vergleichen und darüber diskutieren. Es wird spannend 🙂

This video is an experiment with Mathieu Stern, a photographer from Paris. Most of you guys know him as the weird lens guy :). In the following video you will find the making-of with the beautiful model Julia, but not the result. I only will show the digital version and Mathieu will do his Photoshop magic to make it look like and wet plate picture. We will compare and discuss the result with the original wet plate on his YouTube channel. I’m looking forward to that – it will be fun 🙂
Here is the digital version:

Crazy 360 Video of my Halloween Wet Plate Shoot

Scroll down for English Version
 
Ein Nassplatten-Shooting für Halloween stand diesmal auf dem Plan. Neben eher klassischen Halloween Motiven, wollte ich auch ein passendes Motiv für mich finden. Durch die Chemikalien bei den Vorbereitungen und wegen dem historische Prozess beim Shooting fühle ich mich immer wie Walter White “Heisenberg” (Bryan Cranston) von der TV Serie Breaking Bad.
Mit meiner 360 Grad Kamera habe ich die Entstehung dokumentiert, so verbinde ich die neueste Technik mit einem 160 Jahre alten Prozess.
 
Danke nochmal an Alex für die Unterstützung beim Shooting!!
 
Wie ihr sehen könnt, ist mein Selbstportrait sehr unrein an den Rändern. Diese Verunreinigungen habe ich durch das “nicht Reinigen” der Plattenkanten nach dem Silbernitratbad und der Kassette erreicht. Genau das macht die Platte noch einzigartiger. Außerdem liebe ich die Schärfe und die Schärfentiefe des Petzval Objektivs (ein Dallmeyer Petzval 2B 210mm F3,5 von ca. 1860). Und genau wegen diesem lichtstarten Objektiv läuft mein 6000W Hensel Tria Generator nur auf halber Leistung und das tortz verwendeter Softbox! Als Info: Nassplatten haben eine Lichtempfindlichkeit ähnlich ISO 0.5!
 
Wenn ihr selber so eine Entstehung miterleben und so ein absolutes Einzelstück besitzen wollt, dann kontaktiert mich über meine Webseite: http://zeitreise.jetzt
Ihr könnt auch Workshops bei mir machen, wenn ihr selbst eine Platte erstellen wollt.

Why not do some Halloween Wet Plates – sure!
A Skull – A Mask and a Walter White “Heisenberg” (Bryan Cranston) themed Plate inspired from the TV Show Breaking Bad. I feel always like him when I prepare the chemicals for my collodion wet plate process. This is the first time, I combined this self-portrait with a 360-degree camera for the making-of video.
Combining hi-tech with a 160 year old process is fun 🙂
 
Thanks again to Alex for the support during this shoot!
 
My self-portrait is pretty dirty on the borders of the plate as you can see. I achieved that with “not cleaning” the edges of the plates after the silver bath and not cleaning the plate holder. I think this makes this plate even more unique – it’s not all the time about perfection.
Beside this, I love the sharpness and the depth of field of that Dallmeyer Petzval 2B lens from about 1860 (its a 210mm F 3.5). This fast lens is also the reason my 6000 Watts Hensel Tria generator only runs on half power, even I used a softbox.
The palte has a ISO like sensitivity from about 0.5!
