Wow, why would you need that many?

no joke that is nuts! I can't see myself using more than 7-8 on a shoot.

I shoot cars for a living, and you have to either do it in Photoshop or with many lights. I am a photographer for a living, not a Photoshop artist so I choose the latter. I also do a decent amount of set building where I need to light different parts separately.

That's awesome, I would love to see a setup shot of one of your car shoots if you don't mind. I also like to have the image close to final product straight out of camera. The less I have to do in photoshop the better. BUT, lights get expensive lol.

Quick question for you guys: how exactly do you have your wireless receivers held onto the strobe/stand?

one is with a small string of indian prayer flags, and another is with a salvaged pink ribbion from victoria secretes bag, and then i just hang it around the AB twister that tightens it to the stand.

Phil,
You may want to think about getting the shadows to be consistent to help sell the composite.
Some to the left some to the right are visually confusing.

Going back for another look. It appears that the shadows are added in post. But not too believable.
