If you like Jerry Uelsmann's work like I do then setting up a few enlargers, learning how to make masks , soft edge and hard edge, seeing through your montage to understand where you need to block and where you need to allow light through is important.

some of the tools would include,,, red ruby, pos and neg lith film, diffusion tissue to soften edges, very sharp knife with good magnifying glasses, different types of receiving film if required, and an incredible amount of patience.

Jerry is the king of montage, and when they made features in PS for blending images , all the concepts came from his magic.

Good luck
