    What is my client talking about? Help!

    Hello,
    I'm trying to make some business cards for a client, but they are asking I use a certain art technique with one of their products and place it on the business card. Problem is, I have no idea what he's asking. Here's what the client said:

    "Sorry, but I guess I used the wrong word [orthographic]. I thought I have seen the word used in photography when you take a positive and a negative negative and align them exactly on top of one another. Then you put high contrast film (I thought it was called orthographic film) under them and shine light. The light creeps around the edges of the images where it can and you end up with an outline of all the elements in the picture. "
    Anyone have any examples of what he's talking about? Thanks so much!
