Hello all,

Lighting in a garage/ service station. Wanting to go push the colours of working lights. The practical flouros are cool whites, and I am using tungsten lights.

I am going to run with the tungstens with 1/2 cto + a red violet gel. White balance to them to allow the practical flouros (cool whites) to go green (instead of gelling all the pracs.

What I need help with is I would like some of the tungsten sources to fall to the sodium vapour look. Instead of adding another gel to the already existing gel pack on the tungstens, what combination would I use (as the naked lamp will already look green)? The sodium look is probably a split complimentary or triad, but just doubling an already sodium vapour gel pack should not suffice surely (loss of allot of light)?

Thanks,
