What do you do at a Halloween party at 2:30 pm on a bright sunny day?

I cut a hole in the bottom of a $1 cloth Trick or Treat bag and pushed a Nissin Di866 through with a Interfit Strobies glob on the end at 1/4 power.  I had a second Nissin with a Rogue Grid with a Red filter aimed at her hair.  I gaffer taped the black side of a 5 in 1 Reflector on my car.  She's facing the sun coming through a small tree that had lost most of it's leaves, giving the shadows and light spot.  ISO 100, f/11 and 1/200th was enough to nearly kill ambient light.  I thought I might have to go to the dark side of the car, but thought I would try to get the tree branch shadows into the scene.  I'm glad I put in the extra effort!
