Autumn in my Mountains, timelapse

" Are always dreams to shape the world
Are always dreams to make reality "

A dream.. I mean, this project was becoming a dream because of the time spent to made it! A dream that took shape and come true, a dream that tells a part of the World, which has some magic.
Autumn is, together with Winter, the season I prefer. Its colours, as well as its foggy days, make it fascinating and picturesque. In dull Autumn days I like spending my time in the mountains hoping to climb up the clouds that look like the waves of the sea. Very weird situations to find. It took a lot of sacrifices and patience: sometimes the conditions seemed to be good but, often, the fog was too high. This timelapse short film tells "The Autumn in my Mountains": colours, fogs, snow.. A two-year shooting, more than 40000 RAWs shot.
Enjoy the video and share it if you like!

Saint-Nicolas, VdA

Questo è il mio primo video timelapse. Le fotografie sono state completamente scattate a Saint-Nicolas nella primavera del 2012, durante 5 giorni di workshop di fotografia dedicato ai timelapse. Questo grazioso e piccolo Villaggio si trova vicino ad Aosta, in Valle d'Aosta, nel Nord Italia.

Tutti gli scatti sono stati fatti con la mia Canon EOS 7D, in raw, e poi rivisti con il mio iMac in Lightroom 4 e LRTimeLapse per il deflickering. Il video è stato montato con Premiere Pro: GBdeflicker mi ha aiutato per ulteriore deflickering. Per alcuni clips ho anche sfruttato la potenza di After Effects.

Grazie a Mountain Photo School ed in particolare a GAntico per consigli e suggerimenti.
