First time using artificial lighting + 1 natural

Home  \  Off Topic  \  First time using artificial lighting + 1 natural

Went out with a friend of mine (shoots for mags and big events and such). He brought out his 2 lights and triggers and such so I gave it a try.

IIRC the specs for the shot are as follows
ISO 100
F/2.8
1/250 shutter
Attempt was to bring out the car and put focus on the lines, and still keep the dramatic skyline. It was still pretty light out when we did this.

And here is a single from the same location maybe 30 minutes before the other shot was taken. No artificial lighting was used here. Still trying to figure out how to keep the sky from getting blown out, the only way I can think of it is to take 2 exposures and then use the underexposed one for the sky and blend them together.
