This is for movie, not stills right?

PERSONALLY, I do not use bright lights OR flash round infants. Maybe up to 18 months old.

Use a tripod if possible and some kind of diffusion of the LEDs. Face them into a white or lightly colored wall. Think 'Reflection'. It is possible to put a SHEET over them as well. A single layer of a translucent white cloth may help.

If you have a REAL camera store near you, they will sell a large disc which can be used as a reflector OR diffuser. I have a 42" disc with white / gold / silver reflection OR can be used without covers as diffusion.

The smaller set in the link you provide looks nearly useless, to me, unless I know how bright it really is. For close ups? probably OK.
The larger set is about 1/2 the size my neighbor has. But he is an Emmy winning LIGHTING guy with a vast selection of stuff for every lighting need.

I just bought a 1 watt LED conversion for my AA Maglite. It will eventually pay for itself since a regular incandescent lamp lasts only thru 1 or maybe 2 sets of batteries before crapping out.

It puts out an amazing amount of light and doesn't seem to get hot. The downside is a lack of focus which was available with the 'hot' light. Because of the amount of light, I don't miss that feature.

I'll experiment outdoors one evening using the light to 'paint' various objects and scenes.
