There are an almost infinite number of Portrait Lighting Arrangements that you can create with these DIY LED Photography Studio Lights. This is a 4 light portrait photography set-up that Joe Edelman built with the idea of having two main lights and two additional lights to use as rim lights or background lights. You can even add strobes to this lighting arrangement to extend the possibilities.
