I'm in the process of shooting an instructional DVD in a woodworking shop. All the action is mostly happening around the table saw but I need to stand quite far from the saw to get a good overall view of the scene. My first session didn't turn out so well. I think I don't have enough light (3x 250W lights on tripod).
My budget is also limited and can't afford those fancy light box costing 1000$ each. Renting can be an option but each shoot is done out of town and I'm gone for 1 week each time. I'm a little concerned I'll end up paying too much to keep them so long.
As a possible solution, I was wondering what kind of results I could expect from using some powerful halogen lights on stand (http://www.amazon.com/Designers-Edge...dp/B000E8X4EC). The same type they use in construction. I'm not sure about the color temperature of those lights but I was thinking of using them obviously not pointing directly at the scene but more to light up the place (bouncing off the ceiling / walls).
I would be curious to know if it's a route you would advise.
Thanks for your help!
