don't know where to start : LUSENET : polaroid transfers : One Thread

I saw some transfers in an art gallery and loved them. I have a polaroid camera (spectrum series)and a slide projector. Can I start with just these? From my reading so far I realize that you have to make the transfer within 10 seconds or so of exposing the film. So, I would imagine that if I was just using the camera, that would mean only taking pictures within 10 seconds reach of my "transferring station". That's pretty limitting! How about taking a polaroid picture of a slide projected on a screen? Would that work? Any help to get me started would be greatly appreciated. I do intend to buy Kathleen Carr's book, but would like to do some experimenting while I wait for it. Thanks in advance. Kathy
