I heard about a pro who uses Home Depot florescent lighting for strip lights. The light are ridiculously cheap (well.. compared to to almost anything in B&H) I'd like to try this. Has anyone tried this? Any tips? Goal: Two banks of light on either side of the subject for that 'makeup mirror lighting' look. I know that the flicker of florescents has to be accounted for. Also - what would be the best way to attach them to light stands? I love the idea of cheap effective homebrew lighting. Eric PS. The site I heard it on is http://www.studiolighting.net/ Fun to listen to two geeky photo guys get excited about lighting techniques. Makes you feel - well - geeky too.
