    How do you capture neon lighting well with strobe lights. since the strobes diffuse the neon lights it doesn't pop.and look good.

    So would i have to use hot lights to get the neon lighting.

    heres the scenario:

    a group of people being somewhat backlit by neon lighting and lights from inside of a tattoo shop.
    its dark....around 9:00 pm.
    should i use strobes or hot lights?

    or..something else?

    Hope to get some feedback before monday :)
    !
    Thank You!

    expose for the neons, tell everyone to keep still and fire the flash at the end

    maybe use a colored gel over the flash to add to the color of the neons?
