lighting for two and three-person interviews
on May 12, 2005 at 7:37:05 pm

I'm a newbie and most of my experience with lighting interviews has been for a one-person interview. I have a shoot coming up for a two-person and three person interview. These folks will be talking to one another and to the camera. At least two of the folks will probably be sitting next to each other. Does anyone have suggestions for how to set up the lighting (and them), so shadows aren't thrown onto one another, and the lighting is nice--simple, warm, casual?

I have a four light kit that includes an omni, tota, rifa and one other small light. Any help appreciated!

thanks-

IMHO, you don't have enough lights to get great results
lighting three people and a backdrop properly.
But that doesn't mean that it can't be done.
Get your lights out and practice lighting this scene before the shoot
with stand-ins, so you will have a better idea of your final setup.

Good Luck!

Ruby,

Buy yourself a copy of Ross Lowell's "Maters of Light and Depth". You can order it from your local Lowell dealer for $28.95. It's the bible.

Good Luck,
