Into the Woods | Pt. Two

Ah, now for part two of my Red Riding Hood shoot.

Just a re-cap  . . . I was heading to Oregon to teach a Workshop and wanted to do a theme shoot, but was struggling on what to choose.

I knew I had to do something woods-related . . .  we simply don’t have those gorgeous thick treescapes where I now live in Southern California.

First, I thought perhaps a “Woodland Fairy” type shoot, but I just didn’t feel excited about it. When Red Riding Hood came to mind, I ran with it.

The first shoot (which you can view by clicking here), I was a bit spastic because of a huge lighting issue (it simply left), plus I was 30 minutes away from teaching a shooting segment in a Workshop (I had to finish setting up and get 10 kids dressed, etc. Good times.)

I did a second Red Riding Hood shoot once the Workshop was over and had more time (and much better light).

Here are the images from that second shoot. My son plays the role of the “dis-interested wolf”.

As for the inspiration behind this shoot — before heading to the Workshop I hit up Pinterest for some creative ideas. By clicking here + here + here and here you can view some of the images that inspired my shoot.

In the end, I’m convinced that Red Riding Hood is one of those things that can be done a million different ways. Believe it or not, I look forward to creating another vision for another future RR-Hood shoot.

Until next time!

- Skye, xoxo

    Skye I love all your work but I have to say that this is so intriguing…there is something darker about it but still very childlike. I love the way you used this theme.
