tabletop shoot with rain
Posted 22 February 2011 - 03:03 PM
here's the deal: it's a tabletop shot. The set-up will be about 3 feet by 6 feet MAXIMUM with a blown up picture of a rainy day scene thats out of focus as the backdrop. The foreground will be a food product with rain cascading down.I want to put focus primarily on the rain hitting the product. I want this to look like a miserable wet dreary day. I'll be shooting the product pretty much head on.
There's very little budget for lighting on this as it's just a quick 4 second shot. Any suggestions on lights I should use? And how few I could get away with? Believe me, any and all tips would be greatly appreciated.

Shoot it with a lens ranging from an 85-135 (I love doing product stills with the Canon 135mm 2.0L). Shoot at a 2.8-4.0.
But hey, one different thing could change it completely.
