Hello. I'm thinking about purchasing some LED lights. I'm a beginner and don't know really where to start. I will use them to shoot interviews. My issue is that I don't know how much power(if that is the right term) they should be. My goal is for my interviews to be lit like the example I'm providing. Can some of you chime in on how I can achieve my goals?

Just wondering if anyone uses or has used this sort of kit, where you attach an LED light ring to your lens (some are switchable green/blue) and it throws just enough light not to affect the talent, but brightens the reflective screen behind them so that the camera picks it up as greenscreen or bluescreen.

The Table/Mini LED light kit is a lightweight and portable Light Emitting Diode (LED) light designed by Ikan for use on tabletops. In certain situations where standard studio lighting systems are not practical, small lighting fixtures that can be kept on the table may yield a better result. To suit the needs of tabletop photography/video making, Ikan have modified their iLED-ONE light by attaching a flexible tripod to it and produced the iLED-ONE Table Kit.

 I have a 1000 watt Tungsten halogen light in a softbox which I am looking to upgrade to LED lighting (cooler & cheaper to run) - can anyone give me advice on what LED specs I should be looking for to get a similar output (I have no idea of how many lumens the current light puts out). Any guidance would be most welcome..

I want to hang four 1K IKAN LED lights from the ceiling of an office building in NYC. I spoke with the electrician about it, and he said that the lights had to be hardwired or they would violate NYC Building Codes. I searched the Internet and can't find any LED lights that are hardwired. Wondering if anybody had experience with this.
