The shot is a slow track into a table in a black studio to reveal various props that are on the table top like a gun, plate of spagetti, wine glasses etc.

I'm limited to using the overhead studio lighting so its going to be quite top heavy, I thought of using a space light or lantern to illuminate the table area and snooting some of the fresnels and picking out some of the props and rim lighting the chair backs.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions or thoughts on this?

Whats the context of the environment? Interior / exterior / day sunlight / overcast / shade / night / ???

If you could be more specific it would be easier to help

So many variables..... just try to imagine the table where its supposed to be and justify your sources.
