Going to be shooting a cooking segment in a supermarket which has lots of overhead fluorescents.

 

In terms of lighting, hoping to obtain a similar look to this:

 

 

Any suggestions on how to light this? Would negative fill be helpful?

 

Thank you!

Hi Jon, I'm still learning to pick out lighting from just looking at the shot, but I'll offer my thoughts. I'd say that with the talking head shots in that video, that a soft source was used just off to camera left. The lighting is fairly flat and even, which is what you'd expect for a cooking show I suppose. I don't know what kit you have access to, but a Kino Flo with white diffusion would be a good direct soft source. If you're using tungsten lighting, then a fresnel through a trace frame, or bounced off poly would give you soft light as well.
