Using Flash Creatively—No. 10

I got the idea to turn the side of a building during the day into a dark night club with a singer performing in it.
Emili did a great job acting like a singer.  Unfortunately, I did not have a microphone, so I asked Emili to act-like she was holding one and singing into it. 
The lighting was straight forward—three Nikon SB 800 in SU 4 mode and gelled acting as stage lights and Elincrhom Quadra to light Emili.
Camera settings:  Nikon D4 on a tripod, 24-70mm f/2.8 at 50mm, ISO 100, f/16 at two 1/30th of a second on a tripod.
Post Processing:
Lightroom 4—applied Nikon Vivid preset during import, set white and black points and added vibrance.

Photoshop CS5—cloned-out the light stands of the Nikon SB 800s in behind Emili and added the microphone in her hand.
