the glow is the product of strong light, hitting a wood surface...or orange or red surface..

Wow... I love it... but I think it may be abit above my Photography level. I am a very inexperienced photographer ( If I can even call myself that) We have a very basic homemade studio with halogen lights and umbrellas and that is about it. In more simple terms....is there some way I might be able to get a similiar look.... I centainly appreciate your imput.. Thanks for your time.... Connie

Looking at the EXIF for the photo gives a clue to what is going on. The shutter is listed at one ful second. so I would guess that the light is from a tungsten lamp or fluorescent with similar color temp.

This type of shot can be gotten with very basic lighting, using the tungsten a bit off to the side, and a touch of daylight from a window as fill. Camera white balance should be set for daylight, and exposure spot metered on middle of the ighting range. As with all advice, YMMV. Use this only as a staring place.
