Great one by one Modifiers Example
I purchased this sinlge chapter from the book. If you purchase one chapter and then decide to get the whole book, they will make you pay fill price for the book. Anyway, on to the book: This has a great lighting ratio example and modifier explanation. You could try and mimic this look and then move on with your own vision. The best on this chapter I believe is the samples they give you with one light a time as he adds to the image you see what modifers are used and how they play a role in the picture. That's stuff is great!
