Pulling The Strings - My Portraitcontest Week #100 Entry #1

Who's pulling the strings here? Alena is.

Some bow practice experiment during a workshop I organized. I wanted to show my guests a small bamboo nursery garden not far from our main route. It grows quite thick there. Some dared not enter. I understand. It must have been the spiders...

This is my entry #1 for the weekly challenge by @portraitcontest. Take a look at all details here

The theme of week #100 is Movement. An old favorite of mine. Although, it is very difficult to make a choice. Let's just shoot on the move ;)

Good luck and have fun!

She can't shoot that bow with her eyes closed!

Great shot. I love the textures and how the dark bow stands out amongst the light bamboo.

Maybe she's meditating...Or sleeping...Or just bored...

Thank you!

Very nice shot

The monochrome made it better than what colours could do...and maybe it's the snakes, not the spiders :P Snakes love bamboo forests, hehe.

By the way, that bow was hand-made. It's bamboo, snakeskin and carbon. Not in that order. Snakeskin on the front, bamboo on the back.

Oh...that makes it even better! :P Truly in a bamboo forest.

I like how you did this photo, I like to watch and "steal" from your technique. Thanks!

A very arty shot and that bamboo background is great.
