I have been wanting to try portraiture for a long time now, but haven't the money to rent a set of 800w lights repeatedly. I have been talking to a few friends of mine, who actually make feature films over here, and they said that there are some lights at the hardware store, already on a tripod and all, for 40 dollars each. They are 500w and he vouches for their brightness and clarity. Has anyone had a simmilar experience with lights or any recommendations for what I could do.
Thanks a heap.
