whichever ones work. Actually your looking for a flat line as seen on a waveform scope from side to side . It should only be a stop or two above subject. and you need to have a certain amount of distance between the screen and the subject. Too much spill will result in poor key. usually a good rim backlight on subject will help with the spill. Tungsten lights seem to be used quite alot for this type of lighting. Good luck
