Hey Guys... I am fairly new to video production and will be doing numerous clips on some product reviews in the future with my Canon GL2 DV cam. I am looking to purchase a relatively affordable $400-$500 lighting kit for doing mostly close-up (presentation-style/interview) videos.
I have been looking around and wasn't sure which combination of different styled lights would suit me best. Not knowing the correct combo's or importances between barndoors, soft boxes, etc.. perhaps you could recommend a 3-6 piece lighting kit that would suit me well for my needs. Anything I should stay away from??
Thanks for your advice and recommendations. Hope to join the family here and learn some great stuff!
