I'm going to apologize for this ahead of time since this is a very basic question. I have searched the forums and archives extensively but have not found a satisfactory answer.
I recently acquired the following kit as a result of buying a VX2100. http://abesofmaine.com/viewproduct.asp?id=vplx150k
However, this light is very bright and harsh to the eyes. I'm looking for some way to diffuse this light so that when it is pointed at the subjects for my video it doesn't blind them and/or reduce the squinting. Any help would be appreciated.
If possible, position the light so it's not shining directly into your subject's eyes. Placing the light at least a few feet to one side of the camera (if the subject is looking toward the camera) may help.
An on-camera light might be comfortable for a subject to look into if the light is relatively dim and diffused.
