    DIY Ambrotype/Glass cleaning clamp for wet plate photographers

    Cleaning ambrotypes is a very tedious task. Especially when you want to prepare many plates. Thats why I wanted to get one of these glass clamps for cleaning. Most clamps I found online were not what I was looking for. Then I found the one Adam Savage made for Gary Oldman: https://youtu.be/4MVxJNawefM?si=sxB__Zr7kcl_g1rQ
    I guess lots of you guys did not know that mr. Oldman is also one of us who the path down the rabbit hole to work with the wet plate process.
    Inspired by the wonderful design of Adam Savage I started to design my own version that can be 3D printed. Even the wooden version of Adam Savage is much more beautiful, my printed design may be easier to clean. You can download the files for 3D printing from my Patreon page

    My new easy to use Darkroom

    After moth of renovating my Darkroom, I am finally finished with it and can show you what I did to make my life easier.

    One of the main things in a darkroom is the sink. I looked for age to get a fitting one, but couldn’t find any. But my good friend Lois knows somebody who knows somebody and with that I got a custom made sink that was a lifesaver. Thanks a lot for that!

    Fitting everything in a small space is making everything more easy.
    Another thing that made my life easier is the Darkroom Winch that you can get here: https://www.borutpeterlin.com/shop/hardware/darkroom-winch/ This saves so much time, because otherwise I would be standing there for hours rocking trays.
    Beside rocking trays, washing prints and plates is another thing that has to be done, thats why I build this watering system out of plumber pipes from the diy marked. I am sure you can find yourself similar parts near you. I only had to drill holes into the pipe and find some kind of holder for it.
    I just had to get an old stop watch for my darkroom and this one from Junghans fits just perfectly in there.
    Dangerous chemicals need to be locked up, thats why I use an NFC lock with my stainless steel cabinet (links to the lock and 3d print files can be found at the end of my article)
    Red light, yellow light, bright light, dark light – all these scenarios are possible with my Philips hue system that I use in my darkroom. Just with the click of a button I change to whatever color I need and I also build a protection cover, so nobody accidentally changes from red to white. You will find all prints on my thingiverse: http://thingiverse.com/mhaustria
    Humidity and temperature can have an impact of your work and also can have an impact of the darkroom. With this sensor I can easily read the values and can create automation because of it. More about that in my second darkroom video that focuses mainly on ventilation and how to save money with that.

    Here are all the links to the tools I used, consider buying that stuff locally as well.
    For easier user I use my Amazon affiliate links.

    Decision of Power or how to chose between Windows or a Mac

    Why did I do this project?

    I was interested to work with ai on a local system instead of all these cloud solutions, where you often don’t know what happens with your data. My first contact with local ai solutions was pinokio, a system that automates localized ai installations. Pinokio runs lots of python scripts locally and I have lots of respects of these scripts, because they could do anything on your system. That’s one reason why I wanted to run them on a non productive computer of mine. The second reason is, that lots ai models rely on Nvidias Cuda cores and wont even run on a Mac. The third reason is that I thought that I can speed up my workflow with very large scans with a system that has more ram (I was wrong on that one).

    Reasons for the hardware I chose

    For the reasons mentioned above, I wanted a Nvidia card. Nvidia are producing cards that are made especially for ai work (Nvidia A series), but these cards are very expensive. The high end gaming cards like the RTX 4080 and 4090 are also pretty expensive and are as well very energy hungry. So my decision went to the RTX 4060ti with 16 gigabytes of ram. The internet is full of hate for this card, because it’s too expensive for what it delivers on gaming. But gaming is not an important part for me. The 16 gigabyte of ram are essential for ai models and the low power (compared to 4070 and above) consumption is another thing that made it more compelling for me. My CPU choice, the i7 13700kf was done because of a great offer I got. I hoped the new Intel 14th generation will consume less power, but that was not the case. Maybe AMD would have been a better choice for less power consumption…

    Mainboard wise I went for ASUS, because I had good experiences with this brand many years ago. I think hardware wise, they are still great, but software wise I am not sure anymore (I dont want to go down in that rabbit hole today). 

    To make the system as silent as possible I went for an aio (al in one) water cooling from Artic / the Artic freezer 240 and the Be Quiet pure base 500 case. Both brands I know from back than and they are still great today. For the power, I went for the Corsair RM750x Shift Fully Modular ATX Power Supply, because the plugs are all on the side and much easier accessible than on usual power supplies. I calculated the needed power supply here. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/pc-builder/psu-finder/psu

    Here is the full list with my Amazon affiliate links. I always think it’s great to have also a look at local stores, but as an overview it’s easier to link to Amazon.

    I like simple and functional things. Like Burt Reynolds said in Smokey and the Bandit – Black is beautiful
    Finding all components without RGB was more difficult as I thought.

    How did I do the tests?

    As mentioned in the video, all my tests are not scientific in any case. I just wanted to see for myself how much of a difference such a machine makes to my workflow.
    All recordings were done remotely. That means, I connected with Microsoft Remote Desktop to the Windows machine and with the Apple Remote connections to the Mac Mini and MacBook.
    With that I wanted to make sure, that I don’t use to much computing power for the recording on the tested device.

    For the Lightroom tests, I used the images of my award ceremony where I saved all the changes to xml files, so all clients have the same work to do. I chose Lightroom for testing, because lots of analog photographers will do their scanning with a digital camera.

    The Lightroom test included images from my Canon 5D MKIV, MKIII and Canon M50

    As an analog photographer, especially with the wet plate process I work often with huge scans that I use for my talks, like my last one at the 8K Deep Space experience in the Ars Electronica Center.

    These huge scans turn out great for talks like that.


    With that big scans I experienced sometimes some slowdowns on my MacBook (So I thought). To make it more fair, I tested it with a 180 megapixel scan and  1.12 gigapixel scan. This test was for sure the least accurate one of them all. Because I did every step manually. That’s why I said the test times will vary up to 10 Seconds because of my click and work speed. But you will see that does not change anything on the results. 

    working with huge files is often challenging or most systems.

    Why did I measure power consumption?

    I think this is a part that lots of tests are not taking care of. I understand that time is money, but energy is as well. With the energy costs going up every year, it is an important topic to me. And when a device needs 5 or 20 times the power than another device, it makes a big difference. I think saving energy is an important task for everyone. I understand compared to big corporations (see my article here) this is nothing, but I still think we all can make a difference.

    And yes, my power consumption measurements aren’t scientific as well, but you get an idea about the difference. I used the same power plug on all computers, to avoid differences. And yes the power plug was called Windows computer, even a Mac was plugged in :). One more thing I closed the lid of the MacBook to only measure the consumption of the computer and not the display. With the display turned on at medium brightness it was only 2 to 4 watt more.

    Saving energy is a thing where all of us can contribute our part. In an upcoming video about my new dark room, I will show how I integrated energy saving on that as well.

    The results

    I am still surprised how well the base M2 Mac Mini with 8gb of Ram and a 256gb ssd held up. For under 600 Euros this is a great deal (also power consumption wise). If you invest 100 Euros on an external ssd, you can easily work with bigger scans in photoshop and will avoid the scratch disk is full message. 
    The second competitor to the windows machine is a MacBook Pro with an M1 Pro CPU. It has 16GB of ram and a 1TB ssd.

    Please be aware that the power consumption is only a snapshot from the time when the task was finished. But overall it reflects the consumption that was used.

    All three machines imported the images very quickly. But as you can see, the power consumption is on a totally different level. I use the M2 Mac mini with a “docking unit” that has an integrated SSD, thats the reason it consumes a bit more power than the MacBook
    Here you can see how the powerful Windows machine outperforms the Mac’s easily. But that reflects also in the power consumption.
    Again the Windows computer kills this task with only 17 seconds. That makes a big difference when you have to denise multiple files. I really love this new Lightroom feature. It’s a game changer for old cameras.
    Opening the 180 megapixel image, zooming in and out, duplicating the layer, applying dust and scratches and painting in a mask and saving the file afterwards again. Again the windows machine shows again that it can outperform its competitors. But the Mac’s crush the windows machine power consumption wise.

    The tasks were the same, but the file size very differrent. The 1.12 gigapixel psb file has over 12gb. After all the Lightroom tasks and the previous photoshop actions on the large scan, the Mac mini ran out of space on the ssd and got a scratch disk full message. With a bigger external ssd you could avoid this issue, but I thought it’s not a fair comparison if I “modify” the base model.
    Saving on my Mac took about 10 minutes. Thats why I was surprised that it took the same time on the Windows machine with 64gb of ram. SSD wise both machines perform similar. As mentioned in the video, I have an open case with Adobe because saving takes that long. And just in that moment when I am writing that article I heard back from them. They tested my file and confirmed that these long saving times are as expected with large files like that. You can see that the power consumption on the windows machine is pretty low in that case, but I think its only that low, because saving a file for 10 minutes is a task that does not need much power.

    My thoughts

    The new installed Windows machine was faster at every single task. On some tasks it just killed it.
    I am not sure if it would have made a difference to use a new installed Mac, because I work with the same backup on my MacBook since 2016, but I don’t think so.
    For a final conclusion the question should be, how much benefit would I get from a faster machine. How important is the time I saved with the faster machine. I think there are always tasks you could do while Lightroom is exporting or photoshop is saving. During my work on the huge scan in photoshop, only the Mac Mini kept me waiting for some seconds when I duplicated the layer or applied the filter. Also the loading time took much longer. But otherwise, I was surprised how well it held up against the two others.

    I know I went a little overboard when I compared the Windows machine with my heat pump. But sometimes the computer needed 350 Watts and much more. And when it’s about 15 degrees outside, my heat pump has a similar power consumption to keep my house warm. Let this thought sink in for a moment. Luckily I am can create my own energy and will try to limit the use of the windows client to the sunny days.

    Since I have my solar power up and running, I automate lots of tasks to run only when it produces energy.

    I hope this comparison showed you a different view of how powerful a computer must be.
    The question is now, was it a good idea to build this computer for ai and scans. Honestly I am not sure anymore.
    It’s fun to play with ai models locally, but I will limit the use for Lightroom or Photoshop. I guess I will use it for huge scans where I need to work with more layers, but for my usual workloads, my 16gb MacBook is more than capable.

    Also the noise it makes is something you should think about. Even this machine is pretty quiet (it just sounds loud in the video, because I went very close with my phone) I dont like listen to the fans all day long, that’s why I put it in a different room and only connect remotely to it.

    A very capable computer that outperforms my Mac’s in any task, but it comes with a cost, power consumption is on another level.
    Honestly it’s hard to justify buying a Mac Studio with similar specs like this machine. You easily spend 5000+ Euros on it and with that extra money, you can power up this one with energy for years. But if you don’t mind waiting a little longer, you got cheaper options that consumes much less of energy.

    At the end it’s always a decision what operating system you prefer and how much money you want to spend.

    QEP certification and Golden Society Medal for my work

    Last week I was awarded the Golden Society Medal by Prof. Dr. Sobotka in Vienna at the National Library for my exceptional services to photography (especially wet plate photography).

    I am so proud and grateful for this extraordinary honor. Once again, a big thanks to everyone who made this special moment in my life possible.

    And just a day before that I received my QEP certification. I am very proud of that as well, it was lots of work to get there and I am so honoured that the jury chose to give me the QEP title: https://www.europeanphotographers.eu/2023/11/26/qep-judging-session-november-2023-official-results/

    My Talk at the Ars Elecronica Center and a unique print

    I want to share with you guys a quick tour of my talk, so you can get an idea how it turned out. I got lots of great feedback and enjoyed it a lot. The next day I captured the Ars Electronica Center building on a glass plate and did a slat print. I really like how this turned out.

    a complete analog day

    There are lots of analog photography stores in Vienna. The epicentre is through the Westbahnstrasse. There are many stores selling analog cameras. Among them is Joe Geier’s Mint and rare store.
    This store organises twice a year a huge analog flea market that is called “Wiener Fotobörse” http://www.wiener-fotoboerse.at . But lately it grows slowly from a flea market to an analog event. Beside the flea market you have now also an area with an exhibition and other analog focused companies. I had my own booth there for the second time and got lots of great feedback.

    There even exists an early bird ticket, because so many people want to get a great deal on used equipment.
    you’ll find there always some wired lenses and cameras.

    At home I loaded a dry plate into my camera just in case I find a good subject. And on my way home, I realised that I passed a place where I had a surreal moment. Many years ago, I was driving through this forest (Wienerwald) very late at night when I was stopped by a herd of deer. They just stood in the middle of the road and looked at me. It was such a beautiful moment, but also a bit scary because they didn’t move. Now standing on the same place again I wanted to capture this kind of feeling again.

    I got my Century camera out of the booth and set everything up for the capture.

    The dry plates I use (From Zebra http://zebradryplates.com ) have an iso sensitivity of 2 and are only sensitive to the blue spectrum of light. That made my endeavour a bit more complicated. Because It was late afternoon and it was already getting darker and that means less blue light. A lot of cars were passing by, while I was standing there and looking at the image I wanted to capture. So I came up with the idea to use the lights of the cars to light my scene. Now I had another problem, I did not know when cars will pass me, so I just trusted my ears and before a car arrived I put the lens cap of for the exposure. You can see how I did it in the video.

    I really like how it turned out. If your are interested in salt prints, visit my shop: shop.mhaustria.com

    At the end I want to mention a new backpack and tripod I got for testing. If you have watched my videos, you will now that I always travel with my heavy duty case and my wooden tripod. That is sometimes very frustrating. After lots of discussion with the vendor, I gave it a shot and was very surprised how this made my life easier. I can now carry my whole 8×10 large format camera including a tripod, lenses, plate holders and all needed accessories on my back. Sure, its heavy, but it makes my life easier.

    Lots of space and protection. Funny enough, on the analog event some people were interested about my new backpack and tripod. Even the tripod does look a bit fragile for such a big camera, it is really steady if you don’t use heavy duty lenses on your camera.

    How to easy build a DIY UV Exposure Box with Dimmer and Timer

    Lately I started with alternative printing techniques. Salt prints and als cyanotypes are something I want to learn more about. I did the first exposures with the sun and it turned out really well. But I couldn’t make always time during the day, beside that sometimes the sun moved to fast and I had the prints in the shade, or it even was to late for sun printing at all.

    I got great results in the sun, but I just don’t have always time during the day

    Thats when I looked at tutorials for UV exposure boxes. There are so many great tutorials with beautiful results everywhere. But all I found needed lots of time to build it and a dimmer and timer was not included in the ones I found. So I constructed one by myself, with as less as possible diy knowledge needed to build it. Even I am very confident with soldering and building stuff, I wanted to have a quick solution. Find the full tutorial in my latest video (Scroll down for the full material List)

    I started with a 60x40x12cm Eurobox – you can use whatever box you need. Maybe even a nice wooden one.
    With a utility knife I could easily cut through the box to make myself a door with a hinge. Thats a step you can easily skip. I only made it, so I can access the box, without lifting it up.
    I used a little clamp and a piece of rope to hold the door in place when its opened.
    To make the box more reflective, I used an aluminum tape. its easy to cut and easy to mount.
    Now I mounted the led strips on the aluminum foil. Before that I drilled a hole for the cables in the box.
    If you use the same sized box, be sure to always leave the same with as they led strip is between each lane. Don’t worry if you make a mistake, my led strips came easily off and I got them easily on again.
    These are digital dimmers that have also a time included.
    After you install the app, the dimmers connect automatically via bluetooth. They also group together as one single light. Now you can change the output power of the lights, or set two kind of timers. I like these a lot, because I can precisely write down the time I used and also write down the light intensity. Another cool thing is, that you can close the app and even if you set a timer before the dimmers will remember without a phone connection.
    If you don’t want to use your phone, then you will like these. Simple on, off and dimmer function.
    It may not be as symmetrical as some others, but it worked really well.
    Thats the first print from a glass negative out of the UV box. I think it turned out pretty well.
    One light strip should put out 36Watts of power. I measured only 2,2 Amperes. If I calculate that by 12 Volts I get 26.4 Watts. I already contacted the company who produces the strips, but didn’t hear back so far. I will let you know how this goes. I think the power supplies are a bit on the week side. But don’t worry to much about that, as you saw my print looked really well. I am just a curious person and wanted to know if they deliver what they stated on the packaging.
    There you have it, a very easy diy UV box exposure unit build. Enjoy building it!

    Deep Space Lecture: Ars analogica – where Hightech meets pure Analog

    Eine multimediale Zeitreise zum Ursprung der Fotografie.

    Erlebt mit mir den historischen Nassplattenprozess in Form von mikroskopischen Aufnahmen, dreidimensionalen Porträts und 4K-Videos. Bei dieser Reise führe ich euch durch die Geschichte, stelle euch authentisches Equipment vor und präsentiere die daraus entstandenen extrem ausdrucksstarken und hochauflösenden Porträts auf einer 9×16 Meter großen Laserprojektion in 8K. So habt ihr Fotografie noch nie erlebt!

    Hier gehts zu Anmeldung für den 13. Oktober:

    my portrait at one of the most beautiful places in Austria

    One of the most beautiful places in Austria – During poppy flower season there is a beautiful place to visit here in Austria. The Mohndorf (poppy seed village) in Armschlag. At exactly that place our „Menschenbilderausstellung“ (human pictures exhibition) was exhibited with one of my inspired series portrait. I love that place. Beautiful scenery, good food and a wonderful exhibition.
