Wow. Nicely done. How did you hide the flashes while you manually triggered them? Did you put them on the ground with some kind of gobo?

Taking this kind of photograph is all about walkind around the entire area and lighting it piece by piece with flash.
There was no need then to use any sort of gobo, because the flashes never hit the lens directly. The only pop of flash which was pointed towards the camera was the one that came from behind the cross (there is a shadow in LB corner which indicates that) - but then the cross acted as a gobo.

Lightpainted with two handheld hot shoe flashes, both on full power (except for a single pop on the cross which was slightly weaker). Instead of a traditional lighting diagram I put the same frame lit by moonlight only.
