Sodium Vapor Lighting with PracticalsSodium Lighting
Posted 22 January 2013 - 02:19 PM
I've replicated Sodium using 1/2 CTO and 1/2 straw in the past with varying degrees of success, but I'm looking for a very cheap solution this time, as we have an incredibly limited lighting budget.
The desired end result is to create a very low colour rendition, almost monochromatic like as in the example below (which is raw from the camera).
This is the sort of light I'm wondering about, does anyone have any experience with them?
Thanks guys, appreciate any help.

What i tested I believe was a 700W fixture and the output was comparable to a 1k mighty with a 1/2 O + Green combo

It didnt work for me because I was shooting on RED (green channel problems).
What was your camera and lighting setup?

Hi everyone, thanks for your feedback, very much appreciated. The director ended up settling on a warmer look, which I created using Lee 652 Urban Sodium on a 2k bounced through netted windows.
The results can be seen in my reel, around the 42 second to 1:07 mark for the feature 'Greyhawk'.
Feedback good and bad always warmly welcomed:
