Im going to be setting up a small set (about 4m x 4m) in a studio and was wondering about fill lighting.

I want to be able to achieve both low key

and high key looks

Im thinking that to give me the most flexibility, I could use an overhead Kino Flo (with switchable bulbs) - is this a good plan?

I know that I could create fill by bouncing from a high reflector, but the most powerful light I've got is a Dedo 650 which may not have the juice to give me a high key effect when bounced at the settings Im shooting at.

If Kino's are a good plan, which would be recommended for this size of set?

Im planning on mixing soft and hard sources (eg soft overhead fill but hard directional 'sunlight' through windows in the set

Thanks

..OR a 5' dedo octabank with a 1000w softlight - my thinking is that would be a good fill light and could also be used as a side/key??
