Hi,

I will be shooting a video in the coming weeks. This is the kind of look I'm going for:



I'm not very experienced with lighting and i'm trying to get the hang of it.

What kind of lights would you recommend?

Thanks

I'd recommend getting two 2ft four bank kino flos with both 3200k and 5600k tubes. They are relatively easy to use, safe and don't draw much current. They provide a soft but directional light that you can control fairly easily. Use the 5600k tubes if your set has sunlight coming into it. Use 3200k if you are mixing light from table lamps, Xmas lights , etc. you can even choose to mix them. Good luck.

Also look into Lite Panels, which are very similar to Kino's, but are more portable...bi-color lights are great (daylight to tungston)
