  2. This project took almost one year to complete and more than 50 thousand shots, mostly with two Nikon cameras (D600 and D7000). All the images have been taken in Abruzzo - Italy. It's been a work of passion, spending nights in the wilderness and waiting for the dawn looking at the sea. Although the end product is the project of a single man, I see it as a choral work. So many people have been involved at different levels and I'm sure I'll forget some of them: first of all Paolo De Siena, without him this video wouldn't be here - at least not now. My friends who spent endless days together shooting - Gianluca, Alessio and Giuseppe. Angelo for helping me at Roccascalegna (so many thanks to Proloco for letting me shoot an unforgettable sequence). Christian and Francesco for the best night at Fara San Martino. Luca for pushing me to shoot another 'trabocco'. My sisters and brothers for their infinite help and appreciation. Ugo and Ivana for spending the most dangerous night together in the wilderness. Andrea and Patrizia for helping me when I really needed it (Luca and Gabriella for their patience). Alessio for his wonderful music. Pam, Johanna and all my DPC friends to whom I showed the beauty of my area. Sisto, Riccardo, Emanuela, Mauro, Nicola, Fabio and all the other friends who have been interested in this project. Last but not least my family, my wife Loredana and my sons Andrea and Matteo - you know what this project meant to me!

    The video has been made in collaboration with Tesori d'Abruzzo, De Siena Editore and Shootools.


    Questo progetto ha richiesto quasi un anno di lavorazione e più di 50 mila scatti, in gran parte con due camere Nikon (D600 e D7000). Tutte le immagini sono state scattate in Abruzzo - Italia. Questo lavoro è stato mosso dalla passione, trascorrendo notti nella natura selvaggia e aspettando l'alba guardando il mare. Nonostante questo sia il lavoro di un solo uomo, io lo vedo come un'opera corale. Tantissime persone sono state coinvolte in modo diverso e sono sicuro che dimenticherò alcune di loro. Il mio ringraziamento va a Paolo De Siena - senza di lui questo lavoro non sarebbe qui, perlomeno non adesso. I miei amici che hanno trascorso giorni infiniti scattando insieme: Gianluca, Alessio e Giuseppe. Angelo per avermi aiutato a Roccascalegna (un grande ringraziamento anche alla Proloco per avermi dato la possibilità di filmare una sequenza indimenticabile). Christian e Francesco per la notte più speciale a Fara San Martino. Luca per avermi convinto a scattare a un altro trabocco. I miei fratelli e le mie sorelle per il loro aiuto e il loro apprezzamento infinito. Ugo e Ivana per aver trascorso insieme la notte più pericolosa. Andrea e Patrizia per avermi aiutato quando ne avevo davvero bisogno (Luca e Gabriella per la loro pazienza). Alessio per la sua splendida musica. Pam, Johanna e tutti i miei amici di DPChallenge ai quali ho mostrato la bellezza dell'Abruzzo. Sisto, Riccardo, Emanuela, Mauro, Nicola, Fabio e tutti gli altri amici che si sono interessati a questo progetto. Ultima, ma non meno importante, la mia famiglia, mia moglie Loredana e i miei figli Andrea e Matteo - voi sapete quanto questo progetto fosse importante per me!

  3. Aurora Borealis timelapses were shot last friday (September 12, 2014) in lake Oulujärvi, Finland. The show was incredible as you can see. It started around 11 PM and I stayed up until 4.30 AM when the lights started to fade away.

    I hope you enjoy as much as I did and please, feel free to share!

  4. In August, 2014 we went on a 4-day backpacking trip into the Three Sisters Wilderness beginning at the Pole Creek Trailhead. Along with our gear we packed in my Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Time Lapse Dolly, 2 cameras and three tripods. In addition to our normal backpacking gear we easily had over 20 pounds of camera equipment.We camped at Demaris Lake and two nights at Camp Lake near the saddle between South and Middle Sister. One night we endured a thunder, lightning and hail storm, but other than that the weather was fantastic and the skies were perfect for time lapsing.

    Time Lapsing continues to present new challenges and new things to figure out, On this trip, I tried (with some success) bulb ramping exposures. Some new things I figured out are that you really need to put electric tape over all the lights on your time lapse electronics or you end up with a strangely lit, red or green foreground. I learned that along with putting a hand warmer around your lens, you should also put some bug spray on that hand warmer or you might get bugs walking all over your lens. Just when I think I've got everything dialed in, something new crops up. Always learning….
