Hi Gang

I just found out that I will be shooting a fireworks display overlooking a lake for the 4th of July. I shoot with a Panasonic SDX900. Here is my lighting question, I also need to shoot a person watching those fireworks and need to cut between some of the display to the person watching it. Any ideas on what color temperature I should use for the lighting on the observer. This is going to be used for a political ad next year so I need this guy to look to speak. My next question is how much light to throw on him. I have Lowell insturments that run anywhere from 1000w down to 250w. I'm thinking of 3/4 low angle shots so I don't have to worry so much about any other people in the crowd next to the main subject. Any ideas here would be greatly appreciated.
