Looking for some suggestions and techniques for lighting a black (glossy) football helmet on a turntable. Shooting on the HVX-200, 720p 24PN. Would like to shoot in a studio, but we're preparing for alternative methods (white seamless, 1000h vellum, 8x8 and 12x12 solids). Any input is appreciated.

Since the gloss black will essentially act as a mirror, you'll need to be aware of what is seen in it. As with cars, a familiar stand by is the large white source above, acting as both light and something to reflect in the gloss, so as to define the shape of the car.
