TECH TIPS: Getting the Shot with Corey Rich: Video Lighting for Interviews

I’m happy to be working with Adorama TV to produce a series of short, entertaining and (hopefully) informative educational videos: “Getting the Shot with Corey Rich, Tech Tips.”

Check out today’s episode, “Video Lighting for Interviews” on Adorama TV.

In this Tech Tip, I show you how to get great lighting for any interview with this quick three-piece set up from Litepanels: the Sola ENG Flight kit. I’ll be interviewing my friend and professional snowboarder, the lovely Casey Lucas. I share my methods for setting up three continuous LED lighting sources to make sure this a video interview really shines. I choose to work with the Litepanels Sola ENG Flight kit because it boasts three AC/DC-powered Sola ENG fresnel fixtures, soft box and barn doors for light modification and shaping, and a handy custom Pelican case into which it all fits.

I will walk you through everything you need to know about this equipment, as well as how to set up a key light, back light and fill light in order to achieve a compelling, balanced look for your next video interview.

  1. Hi Corey, Thanks for posting this. I was asking you about the light panel on twitter the other week and so this is really useful for me. Do you ever use these lights for your stills work too? Thanks, Ben
