:P Hi all,
How to make the best use of 1 or 2 soft boxes of 350K each, while shooting an interview byte of two people on DV format, especially when they are stars( as they need to look good on screen) ?

350K each? Talk about glow from inside... :P

2 soft sources give the possibility for a more modeled light. I'd key with one slightly dimmed, and use the other one as 3/4 backlight at full power (try to avoid hitting the nose w. this source if it's hard-ish in feel), but on the same side as the key.

Or.

Same a above, but use the other soft source as a top-light (slightly back-ish) to create a nice wrap on the hair that doesn't look to "lit".

Or...

Use both as front lights - they won't complain about how they look after that.. :D

The possibilities are endless.

Do you mean 350 watts? What are the physical dimensions of the soft boxes?
