Fluorescent Lights & B/W Prints

This is a small rant.

  • 1. I try to conserve energy as much as possible.

  • 2. I have replaced all tungsten bulbs with compact fluorescent lights.

  • 3. I cannot now judge my prints in my studio after dark.

I've faked the results for you in these two images. The first is the image as it appears in daylight or with normal tungsten bulbs. The second is how the image appears under fluorescent lighting. Mine or in the gallery. (And there is no significant difference between Kodak Lustre and Fuji Pearl.

This drives me nuts. Some chemistry/optics genius needs to invent a fluorescent resistant photographic paper.)
