I can think of 3 ways to approach it.
- 'In-Camera'- using multiple exposures on the same negative
- In the darkroom - using multiple enlargers, each with a different negative,
and exposing onto the same piece of paper (I think Jerry Uelsmann's work is
the best example of this)
- On the computer - scan the photos into a program like Photoshop and cut and
paste the elements.

-Geoff Black

one more idea ........ you could try sandwiching slides together.

>>I am developing a lesson plan based on the Cottingley Fairies. In case
you are unfamiliar with them, they are the photographs taken after WWI by
two young girls claiming fairies are real. It was not until the 1980's
that they admitted they were fake.

This lesson will focus on trick photography, does anyone know of good
sources for information on various techniques to create this type of

Also if anyone has any additional information on the Cottingley Fairies (I
have checked out almost every website pertaining to that subject, and I
have seen the movie), I would greatly appriciate it.<<
