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.
