    Hello there, a fellow member of APUG just posted an amazing picture here: http://www.apug.org/gallery1/showimage.php?i=53095
    This dude did an incredible job with this technique.

    Anyone would be kind to explain to an amateur like me, how do you do a print with 2 negatives like that ? Does it involve masking ? cutting ? a magic powder and incantations ?

    Thanks in advance.

    It looks to me like he probably cut out the Caddy from one print (shot in flat light on a fine-grained panchromatic film, with the light coming from the upper left) and pasted (perhaps taped) it onto another print (a grainy shot on [possibly] IR film with the light coming from the upper right).

    I suppose he could have used scissors if he is really good, but I am guessing X-Acto knife.

    I read that he did pretty much that(negative sandwich, I believe), and the sky was shot on IR film.
