Hey guys, I'm a long time reader, first time poster (well maybe 2nd).
Anyhow, I manage a band (rock) and we need some new photos as we've recently had a bit of a lineup change. I'm looking to do various different promo shots around town and some night ones. I'm curious if anyone has any suggestions on a good inexpensive portable lighting source. Obviously if we're in some alley somewhere I might not be able to find electricity to plug in to so it'd probably need to be battery powered. I've read of people using those 2mil candle halogen lights with some sort of diffusion (i'll need some help on that one) but I was curious if anyone here has experience using something like that?
Also, and ideas on a good shot would be awesome. I've been looking at band promo shots for days and probably over-analyzing the whole thing. =]
