I know this question has been asked before, here and elsewhere, but I'm still unsure of the answer for me. I'm a graduate student and have gotten pretty serious about photography over the last year. I particulary enjoy nature photography and have invested in some high quality canon lenses such as the 400 5.6L and the 100 2.8 macro. I currently only shoot print film, but I would like to eventually start publishing my images, so I am considering moving to slide film. I also have read extensively how slide film has a richer color pallette, and will give me feedback on my exposure and metering skills (which is impossible to figure out with print film). As I mentioned, I am a student with limited funds, and have already invested alot of money in my lenses, so I am trying to determine if buying a projector or light table and loupe is a wise decision right now. I have also read that projecting slides will fade the image over time, so a light table seems like the better option, but it obviously is less convenient when I want to show the images to friends. I would appreciate any thoughts.
