Interview Lighting

Post  mcinteractive on Sun May 15, 2011 6:29 pm

I will be only using lighting for sit down interviews lighting just the person being interviewed. Of course, all interviews will be conducted inside. What kind of lighting kit should I purchase? I want something that's powerful enough, but I have a few hundred to spend. Thoughts?

I would save up a little more. The lower priced Economy Light Kits from TubeTape don't put out a ton of ligiht and so you need to keep the lights close to the subject...

I highly suggest getting a 3 light set as you can do a proper "3-point" lighting setup for the person being interviewed. I suggest the Cool Flo 900 Watt EZ Softbox 3 Light Kit. Two boxes for key and fill, one for a back light. You could get by with the standard kit however if you spend a little more, you can get a proper set with boom stand with this kit. You might want to get a few sand bags to place on the stand to stable it out more though...
