    projection, but you have to solve wb issue and balancing the exposure between project and main light

    alternatively, print a mural print and use it for backdrop

    In this day and age who still uses transparency? Use you laptop hooked up to a projector la.

    And splash water is a joke... where is your sense of humor? Lol

    Just the background or the model as well?

    shine a light through a water tank? (stirring the water to create the ripples in the tank).

    perhaps he is think of shooting on the spot printing.

    than make a backdrop is the way to go, but have to light the subject and backdrop carefully, as the vinyl banner is glossy and reflective.
