Portable Outdoor Lights

I want to use a portable light or two to bounce light off a reflector onto their faces. Can you recommend a small portable light for this? Thanks Craig

Would you care to describe scenario>? is it very high? is it a large big canopy? What si going to be the background? is it forest? is it sky line? at what time of the day are u planning to do this? just one word:
are very light, easy to handle and low power fed. I would certainly use em, and some whiteboards to "rescue" and bounce back some of the ambience light. depending hour of the day and kind of existing sunlight, overhead butterfly may become very helpful.
Hi Oscar, The area is about 30ft. in diameter. There's a hillside and shrubs and vines in the background. The tree canopy is about 15-20ft high. I've tried standing under an umbrella and it took care of the shadows on my face.
I'll need to buy or build a sun block device big enough for three people to stand and move around under. We'll be shooting early to mid morning and mid to late afternoon.
When I workshopped the scenes I found trying to bounce sunlight into the actors faces to be tedious, so that's why I want the lights. I'll check out your 575 HMI pocket pars. Thanks for your thoughts - Craig
