My background is heavy into web development(I own my on company) and video production(I worked in a video studio for 2 years) and i noticed that a lot of people have problems with lighting.

If you're looking for something simple to make your lessons look more professional(with lighting), do a quick study on 3-point lighting.

Here's a good tutorial

or you can do a google search on "3 point lighting"

lol...by the way... i don't do this currently, but plan to in the future.

Back to topic : what light source do you use for lessons ?
I would like to buy some professional lights for indoor use in the future..Don't have a wide choice here in my country though..

That setup in the tutorial is REALLY HARD to achieve in home conditions. I have 3 floodlights - 100W each and considering my room is 6.5 square meters big i don't have the space to achieve maximum conditions. Experimenting a lot i came to a conclusion that 2 lights are just enough. You can see the example of 2 lights setup here: http://www2.guitarmasterclass.net/solo-gui...rock-trip-solo/

No daylight used at all. Shadows are really hard to avoid but with my current setup i think i made it to minimum and it looks really crisp and clean so i like it like it is smile.gif

That's a nice kit BUT requires a lot of space to arrange smile.gif Also 1050Watts is a bit too much for home budget wink.gif

i agree, but if you're recording for short periods of time and have the space and $400...it's worth it.

I have one 500W and that is good enough for my lessons. They come out quite nicely. THe amount of lights that you need depends on the size of the room also. The bigger the room, the more light you need. But no matter how big the room is, more than 2x450W halogens is just too much. They will lid up the room quite nicely and then some.

Excellent topic, thanks for the help Kyle!
I read of the 3 point lighting before, but it's true that it requires a lot of space...
But maybe it's worth it!

I use 3 lamps as well David,pretty close to me,about 1 meter,different angles to kill shadows.
Smaller table lamps,smaller wattage,need to be closer but not that hot as those huge 500watts.

Thanks for the tips Kyle smile.gif

I have three 75W bulbs on ceiling, and one 150W bulb just above and behind the camera, used to have a spot-light as well but then it was too bright.

I was thinking of getting reflective umbrellas, does anyone has any experience with them? smile.gif

I was thinking to get something similar myself, like difusor or something. I think the shadows problem will be greatly overcomed by that.

I believe avoiding shadows is easiest by using few lights,different angles.
Difusor/blend is great too,worth of trying. smile.gif
