néon

Bonjour,
je cherche des exemples de photos prise avec comme lumière des néons. Est ce une source d'éclairage intéressante en studio ?
Merci de me montrer quelques images si vous en avez en tête parceque tout ce que je trouve en éclairage déporté est fait avec des flash technique strobist et je me demande si les néons peuvent s’associer a des flash;

Neon light sources is hard to controll. It is actually non-continuous light source, and you need to keep your shutter speed longer than 1/30 seconds to capture the total. It's not like a flash and you cannot freeze the frame with it.

Those light sources are made by different gasses to produce different colors. We have today at least 3-4 different types of daylight. But the gasses can produce only several wave lengths of light, no continuous spectrum. You will have problem with white balancing and color reproduction. Example if there is no red wave length light, you cannot have red color in a photo.

In short, I try to avoid these light sources as much as I can.

Flashes can mimic the light temperature with colored gel, if I need to mix different lights.

~400 euros?
The lamp/neon bulbs may be designed for photography. They may have much higher current frequency than 50-60Hz, and therefore reflect the price.
I have not use any of these types. The more regular strobes with AC power still use flash bulbs, but they also have model light that are based on neon type.
For video, I would like to look into these. and 400 euros seems expensive to get the job done.

Depends on what kind of backlit effect you want. Do you mean complete white background? I use a flash point to a white/bright wall, and another flash with unmbrella on the model.
