I baught 3 flood light and stands ( two lights per stand ) and together they are rated at 1000w ( 2x 500w) they are were cheap and work great, the only problem is that they are very bright and very hot ! infact too bright and hot to expect any talent to be under them for too long. There is only an on and off switch how can i solve this problem ?? i need the light power as i'm shooting indors and using my letus 35 so the cam and 35 adaptor are chewing alot of light and to add to the problem i'm using the no gain trick, so i require extra light to make the scene visable... what can i do ? i tried putting a bed sheet over the lights but then the light from them is not enough for the camera to view the scene... any ideas help would be appriciated.
this would be needed to shoot the new short i'm going to make script (unfinished) here :
