    Can someone suggest lighting for a you tube interview (field of view will be upper chest and face only, filling most of the field.
    I have a cramped office with fluorescent lighitng.
    Looking for a cheap solution that will work.
    No room for three point lights.

    If you take a light (preferably strong) and bounce it off your walls, and turn off the florescent lights, you should be alright. Just experiment with bouncing the light around, you should be able to find something that works.

    If you can fit a reasonable backlight in there, that would be a good idea. YouTube is so low-resolution that you should bring him out from the background as much as possible so people can see the difference!

    Be sure not to drop your lighting going up your stairs.
