Going to be shooting an extensive sequence using a Sony A7s II next Friday under direct full moonlight. A reverse angle will have a character situated in a small pocket/cove that is about 5' back. I want to simulate the moonlight using an LED. 

 

 

Does anybody know what combination of gelling one might need to simulate this effect?

I did some tests yesterday with a D810 and a Tecpro Daylight LED (use those, they are much brighter as the ones whose white balance you can change). While I like the quality of light it gives off and is also able to work off of V-Mount batteries, it only gave me 1/50s at f1.4 and ISO 4000 (don't do that on a D810, ever...).

 

I didn't use any gels as moonlight is pretty much the same color as daylight (just sunlight bounced off a neutral grey surface = the moon).
