Go to Home Depot or Target and look for halogen work lights.

Get a set of two mounted on a tripod. It’ll cost something like $40
for the whole kit with 1000W total (two 500-W lights).

The halogens are too stark to aim directly at your subject, so aim
them up at the ceiling for a very pleasing ambient light effect.

The starter kit below gives you more flexibility, but at almost ten
times the price, you probably don’t need it.
