    Default A gathering for slide users

    Hi to all reading this thread,

    First let me introduce myself, my name is Christopher, just ORD still looking for a job. Came across something call slide film, fall in love with it although I am very much a newbie in photography. I may have started photography quite late till the point certain things are harder and harder to find. I remember a number of people shoot slide film and bulk rolling them etc.

    Nowadays I seldom find people talking about slides film, mostly talking in Digital, or to an extend B&W. I find that in fact the number of people shooting slides are a niche number, in Singapore at least. As digital becomes part of our lives, traditional stuff may be harder to find. For example you will not be able to get a print direct from slides locally, only by scanning and print digitally or using the internegative way for what I know.


    I am organising this gathering for the following reasons:
    1. To promote the use of slide film, be it 35mm, Medium Format or Large Format
    2. To consolidate information about local and overseas information about slide
    3. To provide an opportunity for people to actually sit down and view the pictures on slide, than looking at the dumb computer


    For those interested in such a gathering, below are some ideas of location and timing:
    Location: Peninsular Plaza Food Court
    Time: 7pm
    Date: 16th Feb 2005, Wed

    Kudos to your effort in organising such an interesting gathering. It's a pity that I don't shoot much slides (I mean out of interest, not because of the documentation demand from my work). Personally I find that that it's rather hard to get that good exposure for slides.

    Anyway, I would drop by your gathering if I could find time. Never know what the week after Chinese New Year will hold... am expectating tonnes of backlog to clear.

    Hopefully the first gathering will be good, and will have further more to come.

    Hi, of course you may join. You might want to bring along your slides (if you shoot any) and share with us. Some of the more experience people may help you improving your shooting techniques.


    For those who are coming, you might want to bring along some slides you shot so we can share the experience with different slide film. I have a rough agenda for this coming gathering:

    1. Gather and Introduction
    2. Eat dinner and chitchat
    3. Viewing of slides shot (everyone try to bring 1 roll with lightbox if you can)
    4. Discuss difficulty in using slides (give example) and how it may be improved
    5. Discuss what they hope to see from a gather of this niche group (like MO stuff, organise outing, competition)
    6. Discuss equipment, facilities and pricing


    The last part may be pushed forward to the next gathering if it is taking too long for the day. I have to say this gathering is purely for hobbist and passionate people. I will also compile a list of contacts for those attending and interested in attending so as to facilitates making sure you will know what is happening (basically first hand information).

    I know there are certainly much more experienced people shooting slides that are not in CS. I do not know if they are interested in joining the activities of this group. As I do not really know them at all, I hope some people who knows them or interact with them please do let them know and hope they can be mentors to those inexperience in certain techniques.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Default Not ideal

    I think looking at slides on a lightbox is not ideal. Neither is trying to have a decent conversation in a food court, esp. PP food court. Previous SEEDs have had problems, as you know.

    My projector is down for the moment, but my house isn't convenient because of kids. If someone could volunteer his house I could bring along a 6' screen for you guys to project the slides. Nothing beats a projected slide in a dark room.

    Hey!! Count me in too! I just came back from the UK and is also looking for a job too! It's great to see that there are still interests in shooting slides! Most of my slides are still in the process of being delivered to my house, with all the rest of my belongings from the UK! Hopefully I'll have some by then.

    See you all soon!

    Hi waileong,

    I agree with you, view the slides on a projector really gives you a different feel. Thats why we have a gathering and get to know more people, see if we can gather a good place with equipment to organise such stuff/events.

    Do not worry, my picture (not that handsome....), my contact and my dresscode will be made known the night before the gathering. I will probably bring my Nova 3 AW with me too, or I just put my camera on the table, even easier
