The Studio Q Show - S01E03: Varnishing

Episode three is all about varnish. It's another long video, but I think you'll get a lot out of it. I cover Gum Sandarac, Shellac, and Modern Acrylic varnishes. I hope you find it useful and/or interesting. 



The Studio Q Show - S01E02: The Silver Bath

This is the first (official) video for the show. It's on making and maintaining the silver bath. There's a lot more to come on the silver bath, at least two more videos, this video will get you started on the basics. It's 41 minutes long, grab a cup of coffee and check it out.



The Studio Q Show S01E01 - Introduction

I'm starting this series of videos on the technical, conceptual, and philisophical topics in historic photographic processes. I'm going to start with the wet collodion process and move on from there. 

If you'd like, you can subscribe to the series (on YouTube) and you'll be informed when I post new videos. Moreover, ask a question or make a comment. I'm going to address the more frequently asked questions in the beginnning and also make commentary on your commentary - it should be fun and interesting!

Video Podcasts on Historic Processes

In an effort to curb some of the email and inquiries I get on a daily basis, I've decided that I want to do a weekly (maybe more frequent) video podcast on historic photographic processes. 

Viewers will be able to email me questions and I'll either demonstrate the answer, or, I will give referenced responses to the questions, or both. 

By doing this, I will cut down a lot of the email I receive everyday (it's not uncommon to answer a dozen questions or more a day!) and help the community with some of the basics. I would appreciate your cooperation in guiding people to the video podcasts (www.youtube.com/quinnjacobson) as well as asking questions. 

I've made a little intro that I'm going to use to start the video podcasts - ya know, just for fun:
