With the Volvo the flash heads were positioned approx. 3 meters left and right from the car, at 2 meters hight and 2 meters from the backwall aiming at this wall behind the car.
Angle of direction was approx. 60 degree from the car on both sides.

With my Ford the flash heads were approx. 3 meters from the backwall aiming at the car. This turned out less spectacular but maybe next time I will be more succesfull ;)

Used standard refelectors, no umbrella's or softboxes.

a little different take on using the strobes, but none the less I used 2 580s off camera to shoot these last week. It was my first time using 2 lights ina situation like this and first time shooting here. The light constantly changed till the sun went down (obviously) so i was running back and forth adjusting the power of each flash till i was somewhat satisfied. Let me know what you think.

as the night went on the smoke started to hang and really messed me up because the flashes were blowing everything out. So this is where the running around and playing with all sorts of settings came in to help cut that issue out.

Cracking shot Matt! :D

Shows that it is possible to use speedlites :)

Idk about during the daytime though, may not be enough power.

Too bad I only have 430s.

3 AB's ? nice :D I like the shot even more with the sunset :) The only thing bothering me is the wire going from a pole to the clouds.

It's very possible. I have 4 speedlites, and sometimes use them during the day at full power....which sucks. Getting a circular polarizer this week to help out! :D

You need a couple more speedlites with some power. ;)

what battery packs are you using on each light? the vagabond minis? I'm dying to get rid of my vagabond and all the damn cables
