This set-up was done using 5 tungsten continuous light sources. The lights used for this set up are Photogenic Mini-spots. These lights are a lot of fun to work with, and provide a will you can only achieve with his style of lighting. We use these lights a lot for Hollywood style glamour and when doing character studies.
A couple things to consider when using tungsten continuous lights are:
1. Make sure you get lights that have focusing capability.
2. It it is also important to be able to control the output of the lights. For this particular light we had to purchase third party Rio stats
to be able to control the output
3. You will also want to lights that can accept barn doors. This is critical for light control.
