Here I present a short series of images taken of a friend slacklining, that is traversing between two points (in this case tree trunks) across a taut ribbon of strong, flexible material suspended above the ground. In practice this exercise is tremendously difficult to begin with & takes much time & relaxation for the body to gain confidence in such an uncertain situation. This is a great exercise for improving balance, core strength & overall muscle coordination.
The photographs I took were on a bright sunny day in sparse woodland, providing a strongly contrasting background for the subject. Since I wanted to capture the sense of urgency from the movement of the subject (requiring a relatively slow shutter speed) these conditions were far from Ideal, but, when rendered in black & white, removing the colour distraction, the images express something of what I intended to acheive.
