My wife is starting to make exercise videos. We set up a great location in the basement but lighting has been an issue.
She needs to be spaced pretty far away from the camera (about 10 feet in front) so her entire body is in frame. Also there is a wall directly behind her - I'm guessing a ceiling light shining down on the wall and floor will reduce shadows from the front lights?
I'm wondering what the best kind of lighting would be for this setup. I'm thinking LED but not sure how many lumens, or how large the LED panels should be etc. I looked into softboxes but from what I've seen, they are better suited for closer camera distances.
She doesn't want to spend too much on lighting at the moment, so something bright and affordable would be ideal.
EDIT: What about some long fluorescent tubes stood up vertically on both sides of the camera?
Any suggestions? Cheers.
