If you dont have a flash meter you will have to do some math, its all about gn and distance. You need test shots to verify set up. I've never heard of the "paramount" set up, I am very familiar with "rembrandt" and "butterfly" types of lighting. I used to use a 4 light set up, main light beside camera, fill 45deg to one side and same distance as main, hair light and background light. You can also set main and fill 45deg to subject either side, hair light and background light.Main and fill lights are just that, hair light for a slight halo effect and background light seperates subject from the background.
