The 2-Light Soft and Simple Audition Kit from B&H is a collection of essential lighting components for self-taping solo auditions, and for creating other webcam or video content.
The two versatile Genaray Mini Moon 11" LED panels provide soft and flattering light, featuring a continuous color range from warm tungsten to cool daylight, and brightness that can be set from subtle fill to strong main light. The Mini Moon generates almost no uncomfortable heat, so its passive cooling is completely silent.
The included 42" 5-in-1 collapsible reflector can be used to fill, warm, cool, flag, or further diffuse the light, so you can match the mood of the light with the mood of the scene—assuring your audition video will stand out from the crowd.
The robust but lightweight light stands can raise your lights as high as 10', suitable for rim and hair lighting or background fill.
Genaray Mini Moon 11" Bicolor Soft LED Light
The compact, circular Mini Moon 11" Bicolor Soft LED Light from Genaray is a valuable asset whether you use it in the studio or on location. It's ideal for portraiture, hair styling, and cosmetics, but it is also a great light for selfies, vlogging, and more. It offers precise adjustment to color temperature and brightness via the onboard control panel, remote control, or DMX 512.
The first thing you notice about the Mini Moon is its distinctive shape, which at 2.25" in depth fits about anywhere. The light incorporates a diffuser that provides a flattering quality, while its disc shape provides natural-looking catchlights in your subjects' eyes.
One aspect of the light's versatility is its variable color temperature from 3200 to 5600K to meet ambient light challenges, seamlessly integrate with other light sources, or provide an opportunity for creative expression. The Mini Moon is dimmable without flicker too, from 10 to 100%. While you can make these adjustments locally on the fixture, you can also do it remotely from a console via onboard DMX. You can also control the light wirelessly from distances up to 98' with the separate purchase of Genaray's MB-WRT wireless transmitter. With 99 channels to choose from you can rest assured that you won't experience interference from other shooters. It's a well-known fact that LEDs generate negligible heat, allowing placement in tight places without damage or close to the talent without causing discomfort.
Power availability presents the user with yet more options. The Mini Moon is ready for worldwide use, thanks to its 100 to 240 VAC adapter, but you can also run it on two NP-F-type batteries or a V-mount battery when a power outlet is unavailable. The Mini Moon comes with a yoke that tilts 360 degrees and a 5/8" receiver.

Impact 5-in-1 Collapsible Circular Reflector with Handles (42")
This two-handle 42" 5-1 Circular Collapsible Reflector with Handles from Impact adds a polished-looking quality of light to your photos or videos. The reflector is built around a translucent disc which doesn't reflect as much as the solid white surface, but does exhibit soft neutral reflection. Its primary purpose, however, is as a diffuser that will tame contrast by being held over a subject's head in the harsh noon-day sun. The disc can also be used in situations where you'd use a softbox. Using a disc holder or one of the 3/8" sockets, place your flash or constant light behind the suspended disc for soft, flattering light with open shadows.
The 5-in-1 reflector has handy convenience features that make it easy to use and deliver impressive results, while saving space by folding down to approximately one third of its open size. Impact's smart design provides ergonomic handgrips that allow you to hold the disc in a flat or U-shaped position, or in any way that gets the job done. Each of the grips has additional 3/8"-16 threaded sockets for attachment to accessories or grip equipment. The 5-in-1 Reflector comes with a carry/storage case.
The surfaces are available as removable, reversible sleeves that slip over the disc. Silver offers very high reflective qualities that render a snappy high-contrast look with a cool color bias. Just the opposite, the Gold surface reflects a very warm quality; similar to late afternoon or sunset light. The Black fabric subtracts light from the subject, and can be used to block out unwanted light or to greatly reduce reflections on shiny or reflective surfaces. Finally, the flat White surface provides neutral reflectance with a soft quality of light.
Impact Air-Cushioned Light Stand (Black, 10')

Air cushioning gently lowers the light when making height adjustments to protect equipment and fingers.
