If the availability of slide film locally is any indication, the slide show as either an art form or a family experience must be nearly dead. Whereas for a professional, the ultimate aim of the photograph is the print, for amateurs (of all levels) it need not be. I am continually struck by the qualitatively different impact that a well-projected slide has relative to a print or to a picture on a monitor. It has a "you-are-there" quality the others just don't. Am I alone in this ? I seem to be, except for my non-photographer wife (who considers digital photography carried out on a computer to be somewhat antisocial - people tend not to gather 'round the monitor to share photographs), and my 6-year old (who can't get excited about any print or computer image for more than a few seconds, but for whom watching slides is an enthralling and interactive experience, as she re-lives all the places we've been). One way to enhance the impact of a photograph is to make it BIG !
