    one or two lights will do it; you can use your camera flash as a trigger. Flash meter is very important.

    Personally I feel you are asking for trouble with the outlaws if you are considering using the unknown. Best to practise on something unimportant for a while; simple photography lighting is not hard; but can go wrong easily.

    Well, Id reconsider this

    Try to do outside in nice shade with a nice leafy backdrop

    If inside unless youhave room and time and skill to set up a temp studio maybe just a simple off camera bounced speedlight will do the job.
