Default Lighting for a candle

Hey guys

Doing a very short video clip where i have a candle and a fluid effects flame with a scroll in the background. My objective is to cast with the flame some light against the scroll. Any ideas as to the type of lighting I should be looking at using ??

Thanks for all your help.

ambient? i didn't think a candle could light everything evenly

point light is better i would have thought

that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"
