Gravity Glue – Seasons (Timelapse)
This is my first experiment with time lapsing the evolution of a balance session… one picture for each rock placed (3-4 hours total). i like it because it captures so many of the moments, including when the wind blows certain balances over. you can get a sense of which balances were more stable than others. it made me think of seeing a family grow together…
let it load in HD before playing. check.
Rock Balance Demonstration (Advanced Point/Counter-balance) 2012
The challenge here was making this balance happen within the 5 minute video limitation of my camera… it took about 5 takes to finally get it (AFTER getting to know the rocks). *FOCUS. Relax. the coolest thing is that the camera was able to capture the creation AND natural collapse of the balance before the 5 minute limit. completing the cycle. :)) so here’s how it’s done. *notice the technique of bracing the lower rocks while placing the next. the top rock acts as a pin to stabilize the whole structure, which is why it is very helpful to use a LARGE rock on top. plus, i like the overall design balance that the large top rock adds. and i love shades of red. as soon as i found that red rock, i knew it must go on top. it was a beautiful rock. :) contemplate, try it for yourself. all about presence in the moment. SLOW down. become the balance. :)
