how did you light it so well?

I use up to nine flash units, each on its own light stand, allowing me freedom to position them where I want in each scene. You learn quickly what works and what does not shooting at night in winter up here! LOL! The flashes are synced to the camera shutter using Pocket Wizard radio remote controllers, one of which mounts on the camera hotshoe. My camera, the Ricoh GR, ($550 for camera & lens) is equipped with an "in lens" Leaf Shutter allowing me to sync with the flash units at much higher shutter speeds than a focal plane shutter permits. I normally use a shutter speed of 1/640 sec. at f2.8 for these night shots. Flash units are Nikon SB 800/LumoPro LP-180 size/type.
