Combination printing is the technique of using two or more photographic images in conjunction with one another to create a single image. I measured out the size of the photographic paper on a piece of black paper then in the centre I measured out a smaller rectangle and cut that out using a cutting knife on a cutting board. I experimented with varying the amount of frames and the way they are placed. One of the first prints I experimented with was putting two borders around a centre print. I then tried simple versions so that there wasn't too much distraction.
I experimented further by trying to incorporate two different experiments. I used duct tape to mask out the outer frame and made sure that it was fully stuck together so that no chemicals could get to the paper. I then exposed my image to the centre part and went through the stages of solarising an image. Once it had dried I carefully pulled off the duct tape and placed a new piece over the part I solarised. I then exposed a different image to the outer part and took it through the normal stages of developing a print. Below is my outcome. I like that the outer part has not fully developed, this is because part of the glue from the tape remained in that area.I am pleased with all of my prints as they worked the first time and create a good effect. It's a step further than creating an ordinary print and I think it works well with my theme of architecture. I am going to develop my technique further and use combination printing in my final outcome.
