Hi all, I've almost finished my booth, pics to follow. I was wondering what lighting would be best. I'm using the Microsoft Lifecam HD. I was going to make the slot for the lighting about 800mm x 100mm. I read somewhere one guy used 3 x 26w spiral flourescent bulbs above the camera ( equivalent to 3 x 130watts). He also used the same below the camera.

Any thoughts? I have an event on the 20th August!! so I really need to work it out ASAP.

many thanks,

    That is A LOT of light, I use one 35 watt spiral 5500K bulb in a clamp light reflector softened thru fabric pointing @ a 45 angle down into the booth and have good results .
