For the main light I used a 27" beauty dish on a strobe. I placed it to camera right and angled the center of it directly onto the model. On it was a grid to narrow the light to the subjects face.
Fill Light #1:
I added a blue teal gel onto barn door's on a strobe, and directed it onto the model's torso. The height of this strobe was placed below the Key Light. The barn door's helped to narrow and direct the light on the model's chest, stomach, and arms.
Fill Light #2
On the 2nd fill light, which is on camera left, I put a yellow gel. I placed them onto barn doors again. Note, you can also use a 7" inch reflector if you don't have barn doors. The general idea is to completely cover the flash of light with color. I used a silver reflector to bounce the color of light onto the model's shadow area. As you can see in the finals, above, how it illuminated him.
The background light was a 5' Octabox on a Profoto D2 strobe. It was placed behind the model, and provided a subtle in-camera gradient due to the close proximity that it was to the backdrop. This light completed the 4 light setup I was going for.
