Lighting on the Cheap


I'm looking to rig up a somewhat portable, space-conscious, cheap but effefctive lighting setup for home photography. Studio lighting is uber expensive - but I'm thinking of using some halogen work lights combined with some form of diffuser.

Would be useful for a video podcast too... ;-)

Hmm, on a sunny day you could always use a system of mirrors!

What do you have in mind, I'm intrigued.

Well, I could use those halogen worklights, with some voil and maybe white sheets. I'm looking for a very white, bright setup. But that bright light has to be softened somewhat and I don't like direct light, unless its a warm light (ie the Sun).
