Did I mention I don’t like fluorescent light? And I’m not the only one. Not even mentioning their harsh quality, these lights actually cycle rapidly from one color to the next, easily throwing off your white balance. But one solution to the problems of shooting in fluorescent light is to shoot in black and white and in “shade.”
This shot of some machining equipment took place under some scaffolding holding some old car bodies. They provided a little shelter from the harsh overheads. Of course this meant a high ISO as I refused to use flash in this case. Plus I was constantly on the move, and a tripod would have been impractical in the cramped spaces I was working in.
Exposure Data: ISO 6400, f/5.6, 1/100
