This tutorial by video pro Caleb Pike showcases an inexpensive dual light setup, his favorite tool for lighting interviews.
When Caleb Pike from DSLRVideoShooter has a recommendation, we listen. In the following video he shows off a simple homemade lighting rig that’s both affordable, versatile and easy to use.
Utilizing a C-Stand with a double (or triple) header bar you can mount two lights on the same stand. This makes for a quick setup that’s easy to adjust position. Caleb them mounts a silk in front of the lights (which in the case of the tutorial is an inexpensive light reflector). He estimates cost of the whole setup between $300 and $800 depending on the lights you choose to use.
The tutorial finishes out with Caleb showing a few interview examples that were shot using this lighting setup (even light that really makes the subjects ‘pop’).
Thanks for sharing your lighting setup, Caleb!
