OK -- here is the set up......
I want to take late evening / night photographs of my 56 Chevy with an old run down wearhouse in the background.

I have found the place to do it finally, but don't really know how to set up and shoot to get the effect that I want.

I want the surrounding areas to clearly show that it is night time, I want the car to be flashed -- and I want "some" of the backround (the old wearhouse) to be seen as well.
The car will be parked only about 5-10 feet away from the side of the building.

I plan to shoot with my D700 and either my 17-35 f2.8 or my 24-70 f2.8 (whichever gives me the best FOV from my shooting location)
I have two light stands (with umbrellas), two SB600 and one SB900.
My thought is to shoot wireless so that I can use all three flash units.

Any thoughts on how best to set this up -- and what flash mode I should shoot it to get the background visiable as well ?

Thanks in advance for any help
