Topic slides Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

I have a grant deadline coming up and I need to get some slides made of my artwork.

How long does it take to get slides made (assuming I can find a photographer on short notice)? Any other tips on getting slides made? How much should I expect to pay per slide(i'm in nyc)?

As I remember, where I used to have my slides developed it took about a week, but I'm sure you could find somewhere that does them in 24 hours. I don't remember the developing cost being too high (I think around $12), but I don't know how much photographers run.

There normally is an option to have RUSH developing for slide film, so you can get it pretty quickly. Developing cost isn't outrageous, but slide film is a bit more expensive, $10-15/roll.

As for tips, good lighting and TRIPOD TRIPOD TRIPOD! I think using a tripod is key! Take lots of shots of the same work over and over again. If you find a photographer who has done for slides before, they should know this already.

Good Luck!
