A while back we shared a portable setup that mimics Peter Hurley’s square lighting setup.
The basic principles are the same as Hurley’s setup – shooting through a square frame of light. Only instead of using 4 kino-flo fixtures, Pye uses an over head strobe as the top light and three reflectors as the remaining three frames. The spill, directionality and intensity of the lights is a bit different, but like any other soft-all-surrounding light the result is very flattering.
Here are some of the resulting images:

P.S. It kinda got me thinking that I should combine this with this.
