All in all this image is comprised of 55 images. The more experience I get the more images I find I shoot. Much of the time the bulk of the images end up being used for making 32 Bit HDR images that are then edited and later used for the backplate or lights so that I can have as much detail as possible. I have also gotten more into lighting the environment as well to help make the image a bit more dramatic in the end. In this particular image I went another step and shot a shadow from the angle of each of the lights on the building in the background so that I could get accurate, realistic shadowing on the ground. Ultimately the goal of this shot was to photograph a difficult to light car as cleanly as I possibly could.
