I've been wanting to start shoting large format for some time now, and I think I'm about to take the dive. I shot 35mm slides in my color photography class and found looking at slides in a dark room to be rather addictive. Perhaps I'm fascinated because slides are new to me (it's all been black and white prints and prints of scanned of color negatives until recently). I would like to shoot some large format slides when I finally find enough money to buy a large format camera. I'm just not sure of the best way to display large format slides. I've seen 4x5 slide projectors on ebay, and I'm sure there are 8x10 slide projectors out there (if not please correct me ). At a chinese resturaunt in or near Anniston, Alabama, there was a big picture framed on a wooden box that hung on the wall (the picture was likw 2feet x 3feet, if i remember correctly). Within the box was a light that illuminated the picture (perhaps frame is a better term than box). Was that a framed slide? If so, where would I get a frame like that or where can I find out how to make it myself?
