Re: Video camera - lighting
- The thing about indoor lighting is keeping things even and natural.
You need a larger diffuse source for yoylur key and some bounce for
fill. The intense light works for a backlight known as rim light or
kicker. To get a large diffuse source you need to add some diffusion
gels to the Lowels or bounce them off a large white surface or spend a
wad of cash on a soft box. I like to bounce my key off the walls or
ceiling to fill the room with light and add some blue kicker for

- yes, I have used the umbrellas, and I have one of those diffusion sheets that you use to soften the lighting. I have used the 3/4 portrait lighting.
But what is blue Kicker lighting.
I guess you are saying for interviewing inside you should have additional lighting and not rely on camera.

I do have lighting stands and 2 lowel Tota-light 800W 6.3a 50/60hz but they seem to be more trouble than good bleaching out the video highlights.Have had beet luck with shop lights and 60 watt bulbs.
like 50/60hz flicker, but if it doesn't get enough light in the first
place then results can be poor with the lower end (affordable)
My lab where I film is only lit with two 30W tubular strip fluoro's
which is barely adequate.
I have defused studio lights, but they only come out for special
occasions, no room to leave them permanently set up.
