What lights to get for YouTube Tech Reviews Videos indoor ?

Hello, I love this lighting,







I see his setup is like this,
http://prntscr.com/gixh51

From the pic, it seems just one back light and then rest some reflectors or panels, I dont know.

Whats that called anyway ?

So, what would you do if you have to achieve this similar look




?



Mine is same indoor with 2 windows with some natural light coming too, and I have 3 LED lights like 300LEDs or so, but it doesnt match anything similar bright.

I guess Im missing something.
So, looking for suggestions.

Did you try placing your three lights behind a scrim (or the interior scrim of a reflector) to one side? I responded to your other post-- I think the key is bringing down the window light and getting the bounce in as close as possible.

I dont have those scrims but if thats needed, I will go ahead and purchase them.

I just have 3 lights and 2 reflectors with me right now for experiment.

Real scrims can be a bit pricey; an inexpensive scrim option is to use your 5-in-1 reflector (inside scrim material). A reflector holder is cheaper than a scrim holder, too. Purists will say you don't have the control or the even light distribution of the real thing, but the rest of us hacks find they work well. Those lights should serve you well, too, especially if you use a white card to color balance in post. Cheaper LEDs can have a slight hue, but it's easily corrected.
