[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Not a PS image here. This stuff is "old school". A plastic skull was used, buried partially in sand, then photographed with slide film. Once the slides were processed, this image was enlarged onto Kodak LP7 line film. Then the first LP7(negative), was contact printed onto another piece of LP7(positive). The LP7 pos/negs were then placed on "slightly askew" register pins on a Forox Slide copy camera system with a dial-in color light table. Many different combinations of double and triple exposures were taken. Once processed, the negs(copy slides), were sandwiched together and printed to get the right combination for a pleasing....or striking intensity.

All I can say is WOW! That is some amazing processing. It sounds like so much fun. How do you have access to all of this equipment? As for your shot, I really love it. I love the MAGENTA! Your composition is outstanding. Great work. Thanks so much for sharing all your steps.
