How would I mimic the lighting in Lorde's "Royals" video? Any professional's guess is better than mine. Specifically, what type of light bulb would you say she may be using? I'm on a tight budget, and I've heard that using a China Paper bulb is a cheap way to light a video. Would that work?

The video has a fairly soft, easy to look at image. I don't think it was shot with a china ball, although if used well, yes, a china ball could get you that look. You also could try using a soft box, or soft boxes.

Thank you for the response! What type of light bulbs should I get? I don't know much about lighting, but I've read that there are many options for light bulbs. Do you possibly have an idea as to which bulbs I could try?
