I want to shoot fast-moving water on a black background. Any tips?
For the black background, I can shoot at night off my balcony - there won't be anything showing up in the background. But that means I'll need artificial lights...
What would my minimum shutter speed be? Could I shoot at 1/250 or 1/200, so I can use studio lights, or would that be too slow? I don't think I can get enough light out of continuous lights to shoot much faster than that... and I'd really like to be able to step down to at least f/5.6 - f/8.
Any suggestions on the direction of light?
