    Is there a process which uses same scene , multiple taken films , each have different development , brand , exposure and go to print on one paper with enlarger ? I would say if we can visualise , calculate the final image , it would be more powerful tool than any other method .

    I mean...I guess you could expose the same scene at multiple different exposures...ie. one exposure for sky, one exposure for buildings, one exposure for ground...and then mask/carefully dodge/burn to merge the three together, although I can really only see that being a necessity if you are using a film with prohibitively limited dynamic range, in extremely high contrast light, and with a tripod.

    If you were to use different films for each of these (as in a view camera) you would get extremely odd characteristics in the print however (non unified grain pattern, different spectral responses...)

    That said, I'll stick to tri-x and tmx100 in my hasselblad and hp5 and fp4 in my leica.
