How big is the lift? What kind of look are you searching for? Is the lift moving? How many people are in the lift? What kind of budget do you have?

Tell us some more and it's easier to give you advice.

I'm really having trouble understanding your post...
Could you write in proper English...or something more discernible?

I apoligize if English isn't your native tongue
And you're trying to communicating the best you can...
But it's important people have a clear understanding of what you say...

I take it...
wud=would
plz=please
lift=elevator

There are also lots of spelling errors I recommend you use a spellchecker...

Also I recommend you use punctation marks like comas(,) periods (.) ect...
And space out your sentences
So they don't run into each other making them confusing to read.

Anyways about you're shoot--if you're are shooting in an elevator...
Like I figure you are...

I recommend you rent KinoFlos
They are the easiest and safest way to light an elevator...
Also you can use beadboard cut-up into small 1' squares
Or small handheld reflectors and used them to fill in on certain areas...

Sorry for the English lesson...but...you could use it a little help...



Good Luck

One way is Kino Flo as Rik said. This will create a soft look. Natural look. Another way to do this is by using rice balls. Use 100-150w bulbs in them. I use them quite a lot. You can get these at Ikea or shops like that. These lamps spills a lot though. So use some black wrap to take away unwanted lightspots.

The hard spot light with shadow you can use 300w fresnels for example. You can attach these by magic arms or a black autopole. Use fresnel lenses, not open face. Better way to direct the beam.

Good luck.
