acro

acro is new to me, a risk i chose to take because of its beautiful potentiality. to date, the most daunting set up i have undertaken. ever. set up: 9:30 a.m. home: 9:00 p.m. yes, long day, but it was still the set up that left me sleepless the night before.
husband hung our 140" seamless paper backdrop 18' off the ground. (it was so large it had to be trucked in.) we have never gone that high before. have you see the ladders that accommodate that kind of height?! what would i do without him?? between him and marie, the coach, they managed to tack in to place where husband then finished the taping with 4" gaffer's tape. he left to help another friend and so from there, i went at it alone. once set in place, and with four lights at the ready, the session was able to begin. a few shots in i knew i had chosen wisely. there are times in the world of art when vision meets application and something magical happens...which is a tricky dance considering it involves more than the visionary. and so it begins my love affair with acro, the sport where gymnastics meets dance...
