Female tennis players are very strong, just as athletic, and perfectly graceful. photographer Dewey Nick captured these stunning shots of the athletes while they stroked the tennis balls with all their strength. Here is just a selection of shots. He also made a lot of slow mo videos which i will put togeather later and blog for you as well.
“It was thrilling to get the phone call from Kathy Ryan to photograph nine of the world’s best female tennis players for this portfolio to run in the New York Times Magazine,” said Nick. “She also had the idea to make videos using the Phantom Flex camera system, which allowed us to shoot in extremely slow motion. Kathy’s goal was simple: to truly capture the power and grace of these athletes.”
