The United Nations Conference on Climate Change for 2005 took place in Montreal from November 28th to December 09th. The One Ton Challenge was a display which was part of the Canadian Pavillion at the conference. A ball with a diameter of 10 meters was hung from the ceiling to represent the volume of one ton of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs).

Canadians on average create five tons of GHGs every year and the challenge for every Canadian was to reduce that output by one ton. I was employed by Environment Canada for this conference and shot this display as a pano.

A Canon EOS 5D with a Canon 16-35mm L series lens set at the 16mm setting was used on a Manfrotto 303SPH head. The cubic panorama was stitched together with RealViz Stitcher V4. This panorama was shot with available light at 1/50 of a second @ f 3.5 in Raw mode on the Canon EOS 5D. I made a series of 26 scenes or photographs. I processed all the images in the RAW conversion software Capture One Pro V3.7 from Phase. This software allows me to set the white point balance, drop the contrast, adjust the colour saturation, and fine tune the exposures before I create pixels. This process allows for a better workflow and cleaner files then correcting in PhotoShop. The images are then stitched together in RealViz Stitcher and the QuickTime panoramas are then converted from the flat tiff images
