I like 4,5,and 6! Particularly the lighting on the subject in comparison to the ambient on 4. These would probably look cool towards dusk with a really exagerated subject to ambient ratio. Good job

Love this model. Thanks for the post. Do you have any close ups of her in the hood?

I think #5 is spectacular, and #6 is really close. This model is perfection, I want to see more in the future with her. Nice going!

Nice set of photos but the axe is a distraction especially in #4 which, I think is the best of the bunch --- and as a sport's shooter I think #4 is just a wee bit crooked.

Where did you get the long cloak? Just looking at it gave me a lot of ideas.

Some nice shots here. Watch that red channel though: its pretty clipped in most of these. It may be in part due to mixing it down into sRGB for web.

#1 is fantastic. Love the leading of the robe up to "Ol' Ms. Red".

Wow, there is so much to reply to. So I'll do my best to just go over a few things.
First off, I know that the compositions and shots aren't the most creative or ntriguing, again, as I stated in my original post, it was freezing outside! So I had planned to do a lot more in depth angles and shots and explore several different "story line" elements, but it just wasn't happening. We were out for all of an hour and about died. So that is why they are what they are. And for that same reason, that is why the ax looks out of place. It's because I was wanting to explore the idea of having parts of the "wolf" hanging out of the basket or scattered about, to make it look like she had exacted her revenge or whatever on it. But the cold again was getting the better of the both of us, and we snapped a few and said, "too cold, let's go!"

Now as far as lighting goes for the ones that were strobed. It was just a simple two cross light set up. Had a medium gridded softbox to camera left and a strobe with a 20 degree gridspot to camera right and behind subject.

As for PP. Again, it is just my style/philosophy as a photographer to do as little post as possible and get the image I want in camera. I'm not against photoshop or anything like that. I just am not one to manipulate my vision in post. I do agree though, that the strobed ones should've been done more dramatically to make the ambient less and darken the mood. That was my fault for grabbing my B400's instead of my B800's. I didn't have enough power to kill the ambient as much as I wanted to. Again, had it not been so damn cold, I would've run back to the car and switched to the B800's. But I didn't.

The red is not clipping at all in Adobe RGB files. It must be from the color conversion, and low ressing of the files.

Okay, and lastly, as far as the cloak goes. Her mom made it. I bought 3 yards of red jersey knit fabric and gave it to her and she did the rest. I don't think it was too difficult to do.

Thanks so much for all the feedback. I always do appreciate it!

Cheers,
-Jason

Sorry, but I had to add the lyrics from "Little Red Riding Hood". If you can listen to this song, it can really set the tone for this series, with more suggestive seduction on the part of the model. I still sing it in the shower.

"Lil' Red Riding Hood" (Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs)

[howls]

Who's that I see walkin' in these woods?
Why it's Little Red Ridin' Hood

Hey there Little Red Riding Hood
You sure are lookin' good
You're everything a big bad wolf would want

Listen to me [howl]

Little Red Ridin' Hood
I don't think even big girls should
Go walkin' in these spooky old woods alone

[howls]

What big eyes you have
The kind of eyes that drive wolves mad
So, just to see that you don't get chased
I think I ought to walk with you for a way

What full lips you have
They're sure to lure someone bad
So, untill you get to grandma's place
I think you ought to walk, with me and be safe

I'm gonna keep my sheep suit on
Till I'm sure that you've been shown
That I can be trusted walkin' with you alone

[howls]

Little Red Ridin' Hood
I'd like to hold you if I could
But you might think I'm a big bad wolf, so I won't

[howls]

What a big heart I have
The better to love you with
Little Red Ridin' Hood
Even bad wolves can be good

I'll try to be satisfied
Just to walk close by your side
Maybe you'll see things my way
Before we get to grandma's place

Little Red Ridin' Hood
You sure are lookin' good
You're everything a big bad wolf could want

[howls]
(Baaa)

Thank you! Appreciate it.

Oh, and I thought I'd share one more natural light shot.

Cheers,

jason, i vastly prefer the shots in this set which portray little red riding hood as opposed to a beautiful model in a red hood-what i mean is that some of these showcase a story concept and some the girl-i hope that's a fair critique, given that you were short on time and unable to fully develop the concept

shot 4 provides a sense of place-she feels contained within the woods as opposed to the first few shots, where it feels that she's standing outside of the woods, a very different type of mood-i also prefer shot 6 to 2 and 3 because in 6, she feels small and vulnerable-in 2 and 3, she has a very confident posture and expression-very direct, which is not the character of story, imo

i like the ideas you shared, will be interesting concepts-i would love to see a darker and moodier capture to go along with the concepts you're pursuing-more dramatic, less bright tones, etc

hope this is fair and useful feedback

Nice set, out of the strobed shots 1 & 4 are my favs and all the natural light shots are great but 5 & 7 stand out. Good work
