    Stiching together negatives

    Hi all!

    I'm wondering what are you using to stitch together negatives? If tape then what tape? To minimize those nasty tape-up lines in final prints that is. I've been doing a relatively long and tedious project which incorporates multiple negatives into single prints. one way would of course to print each separately and use masking film. Which while working, is quit a lot of work as well.

    Stiching together negatives

    When I've tried this, I've printed the negs separately and mounted the prints together, having lined the prints up on a lightbox, and cutting them so they mount flush.

    For now I think the best option is to print every negative separately and mask rest of the paper. At least when tape / negative borders / etc are not meant to be visible in final print. Of course some times that's a part of the artistic vision
