    I need to take some photo's of one of our latest projects which is an office fit out, what film/filter would people recommend to achieve the best results under fluorescent lighting??

    In answer to your question, the standard technical method would be to use normal Daylight film with a speed of ISO 400 (e.g. Fuji NPH 400 or Kodak Royal Gold 400 if it's still available) or Daylight Slide film such as Fuji Provia 400 all these films should give excellent quality results.
    The filter you will need to use is a FLD filter (Fluorescent to Daylight) which will correct the yellow/green colour cast you get photographing under fluorescent lighting.
    I am presuming you are looking to obtain the maximum amount of detail from your photographs therefore you will be using a small aperture f16 - f22 therefore I would also suggest that you mount your camera on a sturdy tripod.

    Hope this is of assistance,
