Convention Ctr window

The Orlando Convention Center was pretty nice, but…



The lights in the convention center made photography inside rather difficult as can be seen in the next animated gif…



The lights inside the Orlando convention center cycle in such a manner that they fool the eye into seeing a more natural wavelength and are decent for poster viewing, but awful for photography.  Here is Rene Renteria and his student, Nikolay Akimov while the color balance shifts all over the spectrum.  If your pictures from the convention center have funny looking color, this is why…

Hey Rene, good to see you again.  Sorry about the crazy photograph and atrocious, awful lighting…  Next year in Denver, hopefully the lighting won’t be so bad.
