Freebie - Daz iRay Studio Lights V2

An update to my older lights - added a backlight, hairlight and background light as well as a few effects including Mono rendering and a cross processed effect.

Make sure that your render settings are set to Scene only. (Theres a turn off dome option) Although you can mix HDRi with these lights, for this purpose, you want it off.

If you do these things you should get exactly the same results. (Shaders apart)

Iray Studio Lights by second-circle 

There are 13 lights in this setup, but in the image only one is on at a time. Each gives a different effect and all have their place. Some look better with a second light to add depth, but, for example, when I shoot nudes in studio I’ll often use a side light only or single front light. Most of these are pretty flattering to a model – you will have your own preference, but load a model up and just try a few renders with different lights on and off. 

Play with it and find what works for you.
