I am a novice trying to to shoot a “How To” on plumbing indoors. This involves mostly close-up shots. I have read articles on lights and illuminations that appeared on Videomaker; but what would the experts recommend on the type of light(s) under $500 for the project.
You can get a cheap 3 light setup on B&H or other place for between $300-&500. At that price point, the emphasis should be on amount and placement of the lights instead of the quality.
