My photography teacher suggested I try taking some pictures using slide film to do Polaroid transfers, but I've never used slide film. Is there any tricks I should keep in mind while shooting? I've been using regular 400isp BW film, shooting a 35mm canon rebel.
There's no need to bracket if you can expose the film correctly on the first try. Bracketing is taking multiple photos of the same thing, using different exposures.
Basically, slide film is less forgiving than negative film. Theere's less shadow detail and it's easy to blow highlights. You have to get the exposure right; there's less of a possibility that you'll be able to fix problems in the dark room. That being said, slides are higher quality, sharper, and usually last longer than b/w negatives.
