Help! need suggestion!
Jan 8, 2013


A product shoot opportunity has fallen in my lap that I'd like to do... the problem is I have no experience with lighting. I have a good understanding how it works, but I need to figure out what to do about equipment. I've seen all the cheapy light kits, but from reading a little on this board, they are not recommended.

A little about the project, it's a small medical device. I need a solo 'floating' shot, a shot of it being held by hand, and then a shot of it on a patient, close up on the arm.

I'm considering a light tent for shooting the product itself, but I'm trying to figure out what to do for lighting the patient(will just be of the arm). I know I need to do continuous light.

I need to do this on the cheap.

So would love some advice for what you would do to get the job done. No DIY, as I don't want to look like a hack. Should I rent a kit? Buy one nice light and use a bounce for fill?

Thanks for any help!
