If you are using digital, you can have fluorescent lights on if your camera
has the setting.

I'm glad Mel didn't say "never, never, never" because
I often use full-spectrum fluorescent lamps on digital and no
filtering or adjustments are needed.
My "lightbox" was a $10 shop light fixture, two 48" tubes,
and one or two plastic diffusers from grid ceiling tile applications.
Cheap, long-lasting, stable color, cool. Fill-in flash or a mirror
Ditto when I shot film -- common Kodak slide emulsions were very
happy with the light.
