Playing with ONE light

With inspiration from the One Campaign I bought a very light, light setup. I’ve been thinking about this light for many years but never had a light that worked. (too wide, too big or too strong.. most of the time too clumsy) \
\
I use two small 500w halogen lights put together, nothing else except a stand that is hung from another stand so that I can take pictures without getting anything unwanted (stand, cables etc) in the picture. This also works great for filming, thread above shows what it looks like. \
\
One problem using halogen this way (500W x 2 = 1000W) is heat. I don’t use any makeup for my subjects but I think I should. It’s too much sweat after just a short while. And people have a problem to look at me because of the strong light just above the camera.\

Camera used: Sigma SD10\
Lens used: Sigma 24-60 2.8 EX\
\
As always. Please look at these with a monitor showing gamma 1.8. If you’re using a PC they are way too dark. Get a mac!\
