I didn't know you could photograph inside the museum until I entered and =
only had 4 rolls of Kodak Gold, 200 speed, 36 exp. I used a Minolta =
7000 Maxxum and my pictures turned out great even though that film is =
for general use. The only problem I had was that some of the paintings =
have a protective glaze (forgot the name of it) over them which reflects =
the light, and should have photographed them from a side angle instead =
of head-on. The next time I go I plan to use slide file because I show =
slides in my classroom. Maybe someone could also recommend a good slide =
film for me to use. It would cost too much to have slides made from my =
negatives. I only took 144 photos and it wasn't nearly enough. So what =
ever film you get...get lots of it!

>>Hope the inquiring person gets this- You can scan your pictures that you
took at the museum w/ print film -also magazine & books( -Should have a
scanner at school ) & Print them on transparency film in your computer
printer. Show to students on overhead. You can also Fiddle around w/ the
pictures in paint programs. Print film & developing if you get the small
size print is cheaper than slides & about 6 photos will scan on a
transparency sheet which are about a $ a piece at Wal Mart. Overheads have
certain advantages over slides -overlays & such. Bill
