I purchased this light kit:
after getting frustrated with all the DIY clamp lights, etc. After assembling just one of these softboxes and turning on all 5 bulbs, I was amazed at how much light it produced. So I assembled two of the three softobxes and I need to use them to light a very small area, basically just a subject sitting in front of a wall in a 11x12 foot room.
Each softbox allows me to turn on/off each bulb. So the question is, how do I know how many bulbs to turn on on each softbox? I just need a nice evenly lit subject, something like you might see on the evening news. I'm not going for any mood or dramatic effect.
If I turn on all 10 bulbs, I think it's way too much light for this small area. I'm shooting the video with a Canon XA-10 if tha helps. How can I determine how many bulbs on each softbox to have on while shooting my video?
