Is fluorescent lighting a worthwhile alternative for budget studio lighting?
Mar 2, 2013

I came across this website that sells lighting setups using 5500k output fluorescent for studio use. It looks like a really reasonably priced way to go. Anyone care to comment on pros or cons to a setup like this? Would the lighting work well for portraits?
