So he (the wolf) ran as fast as ever he could, taking the shortest road, but the little maiden took the longest; for she stopped to pluck roses in the wood, to chase butterflies, and gather nosegays of the prettiest flowers she could find she was such a happy and innocent little soul.


Thanks everyone! I'll try to post a "how did he do that" description when I get some time, but the short answer is with strobes.

I got a little carried away on the "short" description of how I did this..if interested you can view it on my blog at:

wonderful little red photograph! although I think the BG should be a bit more "shadowy"
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gorgeous. Beautifully balanced and lit. Love the dreamy pp. My immediate thought was Little Red Riding Hood, but you chose a different title. Is this a combination of natural light and strobe?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Has a good feel to it.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/27/2010 08:34:46 AM
I've never heard of that one but this certainly conjures up Little Red Riding Hood. The mood and the light really work. So far, the best one I've seen. 9
