you're correct rami,
only surfaces or objects painted with phosphorescent paint (day-glo) with show under ultraviolet light. you would need daylight lamps gelled with congo blue to keep the look of untraviolet (light from tungsten lamps will be reduced to zero with congo blue) warning though - congo blue transmits less than 1% of the light so you may need big daylight units!

i'm not quite sure how much visible light is emitted by ultraviolet fluorescents but that would be easy enough to test. bring your camera to your local disco and shoot skin tone under it making sure no stray light is coming in. that should give you an idea how much exposure you'll get from objects or skin not painted with phosphorescent paint.

try using uv lamps in Kino fixtures - saw this done on a photo shoot a month ago.
Use other sources to put enough visable light on the face and use flags to keep it off everything else if that is the effect you are going for.

If you need more light you can also rent UV canons - larger blacklight bulbs in a aluminum housing simliar to a par can - that way you can avoid having to gel all your tungsten units.

I think they used some of that Ultra Violent lighting on Clockwork Orange . . .

As for the Ultra Violate light, Baise Moi may be a good example of it . . .




Sorry, I simply couldn't resist. :P
