unofficial slide workshop/crit, etc

The recent discussion about slide quality, do-it-yourself, get someone
professional to do it, slides on CD, slides from digital images, etc, etc,
etc has reminded me that I've wanted to organise an unofficial, on-the-side
"Slides" session at NCECA. We could steal some slide projectors and use the
clayart room one evening or take over one of the small slide rooms for the
evening, whatever.

Object: I've been taking my own slides for a few years now. I think they're
good but don't have much to compare them against and have never had them
critqued. I think there may be some others in this situation.

I just met Kieth Chervenak's friend Sandy Hadden-Miller and she was
describing an evening where they did something similar. One thing they did
was just put all the slides in the projectors and just ran through them at
the same speed that a jury would look at them. It sounded really objective
and she said that it really made it clear where her self-done slides stood
in the bunch.

We could simply do that. It'd be quick, objective, just run through the
slides, no comment from anybody, you make up your own mind. Walk an evening
in the jury's shoes.

For those that wanted more, we could actually talk about technique, hints,

I'd be willing to try to organise it. Any takers?

Barbara Brown was working on the International Slide shows last year, maybe
she knows who we could contact?
