    Ok anyone got any guides or techniques to the art of manipulation for non-digital black and white! Be it sandwiching, solarizing, etc!
    Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated or even a website to see some other photographers work!

    Thnx!

    What kind of manipulation do you have in mind for traditional B&W prints? The "alternative" stuff I do involves manipulation of various Polaroid films. :D There was a thread here on solarization; someone had some good success with that technique.

    What interests you?

    Well i was thinking of sandwiching... the idea attracts me!
    And maybe solarization! Or a mixture of both! ;)

    You should be able to run a google search on the Sabattier effect (AKA solarization) and get lots of good information. :D

    I've never found 2 negs that would seem to work for it. Haven't looked too hard, I suppose. :wink:

    We kinda had a assignment on sandwiching in high school so we shot specifically for this idea. I had a series of photos and a friend of mine on different game boards, chess, snakes and ladders, monopoly and so forth. How I wish I still had those prints now :-?

    So u just put 2 negs on top of each other and print?
    Is there any cropping of the negatives?
    The reason i ask is because im new to the manipulation!
