Hi,
I need your advice in setting up lighting for different scenes, at
present time mostly for single objects, turned around Y axis (turntable
animation).

Achieving a good lighting environment is a challenging task, especially
for new users. When I was working with VRay, I found a set of
ready-to-use scenes with lights, light-boxes, umbrellas, etc. for
different cases, such as jewelry, faces, body, glossy objects, etc.
which helps me to start setting up my own.

I read this tips:
http://warp.povusers.org/povtips/
but it's only a basics, I would like to have set of professionally done
examples.

Could you please help me to find them, at least point where to start ?
Thanks in advance,

Look for basic portrait photography lighting. It works very well for single
objects.
This came up with a quick search,

Yes, this setup needs a lot of tweaking, but I was so glad to obtain
this tool that, posted the first draft immediately. :)
