Lighting Sheet: Portraiture: Key light, gridded rim light, & gridded background light

This lighting is a good base lighting set-up that can be quickly and easily modified in a shoot to create different lighting effects.
The umbrella fill light is optional and really is a matter of taste depending on how dark you like your shaddows.
The strip light can be easily moved forward and backwards (always pointing at the subject) to change the effect of the lighting. Moving it back it will act as a second rim light. Forward and it illuminates the subject more. Removing the grid from the strip light and you will get a softer light.
Additionally by turning off background and/or the rim light you can easily create a very different look with the lighting (see below).
