NatureScapes is a short time-lapse film, shot in the wonderful Tuscan-Emilian Apennines.

It comes from a simple idea: apply the time-lapse shooting technique to a “normal” subject, not well-known like the highest mountains or the most famous national parks. NaturScapes tries to show the beauty of this wonderful territory with its hidden treasures.

It’s an hard and long running project (more than 100,000 pictures have already been shot), made of difficult shooting sessions, day and night time, in every weather condition.

Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower (from seconds to many minutes) than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing.
