How to achieve this lighting?

Hi all,

I'm thinking of shooting some portraits with tungsten lights to achieve a particular mood I am after.

I've only ever used flash to artificially light portraits...

This image by the American photographer William Eggleston sort of gets at the lighting style I'm after.

Do you know how i can achieve this? And do you think I am barking up the right tree thinking about tungsten bulbs instead of flash.

Cheers

Leo
