    What do you do about colour balance when shooting indoors in the mid
    afternoon, lots of daylight coming in through large windows, but overhead
    lights are fluorescent? I'm using colour negative film in a 35mm SLR.

    The neg film you are using is probably daylight rated anyway (right?) so aim
    for the 'keylight' source to be the light coming in from the window. Then
    use 'fill in flash' to help the contrast ratio. Just shoot for the best
    exposure and let the lab do a 'grade' for you when you get your shots back!
    =)

    Or scan your negs into the PC and do your _own_ grade in photoshop.
