Modern-Day Fairy Tale

With the popularity of modern-day fairy tales on TV and the movies, such as Grimm, Once Upon A Time, Snow White And The Huntsman, and Maleficent, I decided to try my own take on the theme.

These shots of Red Riding Hood were taken during the winter and near dusk to help with the overall mood of the photos. The model did a great job of maintaining a lonely/apprehensive expression throughout the shoot to help convey the story. I used several props, but the cape really was the clincher.  Because of the velvety material the red color looked super-saturated in the photos and needed no enhancement.

I thought the photo set turned out great — tell me which photo you like the most.
