Nothing wrong with a photo shoot. You can achieve great results this way. You just have to make it look real, and she has to give 100%. Full power. You can tell in the picture she is not giving anywhere near 100%. Have her go through a full swing, with 100%. Obviously you cant do this in a studio. Needs to be on real court.

Yep, this assessment is absolutely spot on, and a lesson learned. The trick in studio is that the recycle time of the strobes limits the number of times you can fire in quick succession, so it would take quite a few full power attempts to get a variety of shots. Hoping to be able to try this again on location at a real court!

Agreed with the others. If you could find enough studio space, you could always put up a golf net up and have her serve into that.

A signature shot would be her tossing the ball up in the air and about to hit it. Like with their back arched and everything.

No argument from me. If I get another chance, I would definitely try this out. Having total control over lighting and the environment in studio is great, I just needed to make it more real. Alternative is to try and bring some studio lights onto a tennis court -- I may try this as well :)
