Lighting

Can anyone give me advice on what type of lighting equipment I should get for just taking regular shots inside of a home. (not panaramic shots). I want a proffesional look.

i would suggest you to use reflectors and natural light...

and in some cases to use software such as CS3 or PhotoMatrix to create HDR images...

 

Good luck

Thanks for that post Fitz. Very interesting articals, I think the second one is the best for what we do. Picked up a few tricks for myself.
Nikon D300, D3s, Nikon 10.5 lens, RingT105N+Footplate+MrotatorTCPs, Giottos MT9261 Tripod, Manfrotto 410 Jr geared head.

If you know the "secret" then everyday is a good day!

This is what I do for video- I have 3 clamp lights and I go back and forth between different bulbs - the GE natural light bulbs do a good job simulating sunlight. You can get 3 clamp lights for about 20 bucks and another 10 bucks in bulbs.   Experiment with different bulbs and see what you think. For a 30 dollar light kit you can't go wrong. I also agree with livingNC - always use Natural light with reflectors over artificial light. This will yield the best results. But sometimes you don't have any natural light.
