    Default Help me buying lights + diffusers/softboxes for interviews

    Hi there,

    I have to do a lot of interviews at my job during the next months, and therefore need to buy some lights. I have to do both one and two person interviews, probably with white/grey backdrop. But my knowledge about is quite scanty. I guess I need lights for a three point setup, and maybe some light for the backdrop as well.

    I already have two Lupoled 560 LED panels + some old spots. But that's all.

    Can anyone reccomend what would be smart to buy? I'm think about:

    - More LED Panels? (hair light + background light). Or should I be okay using my old spots (they seem very intensive compared to the LED panels

    - Would it be smart to get some diffusers or softboxes? I'm especially thinking about the LED's being reflected in the people's glasses

    Thank you!

    Before you go for LED panels, have a look at this.

    Okay, it's made by a light manufacturer (Ianiro) but it does give a bit of an explanation about the disadvantages of lights like litepanels etc.

    I bought three of these from a local construction supplier - 500, 250 and 250
