I want to use mainly practical light from lamps on a upcoming short I am shooting on 7218. I have a set of 75 watt bulbs and 150 watt. My idea was to use the 150 watt in some of the larger lamp shades and also in the areas where important action take place. I would use the 75 watt for a lamp or two in the background. I also have a small tweenie kit and want to bounce light to accent the 150 watt. The shades are all around a kind of beige tone a few are more towards a off white color. My question is, is 150 watt going to be too much? I was originally planing on going with 200 watt bulbs but felt that might be too much. I could always hook the bulb up to a dimmer though I dont want to change the color temp to much.

What stop do you want to shoot at? In the T2.8 range, I think 150w (PH212) is fine. You might want to have a few 250w (PH213) bulbs just in case. It'll depend on how dense the lamp shades you are using are.
