Panorama photography composition is a key element to a compelling story. Building upon 25 years of design education, Denis Gadbois will show how 2D and 3D design notions can improve panorama composition. Denis will focus on key design elements such as colour, viewing parameters, evaluation of the site, heights, distances, retouching, alteration and layout. Each projection type (little planet or equirectangular) have different design parameters to consider and Denis intend to feed his talk with his work and other precedents that clearly illustrates the concepts presented.

- He is a senior instructor at the University of Calgary and teaches design studio, 3d scanning techniques and panorama photography at the Faculty of Environmental Design (master degree in Architecture, Design and Planning).
- Example of his writing in design can be found here
- Denis’ work in panorama can be seen at his web site: www.vrpanorama.ca.
- He is currently working on a project to document the Writing on Stone Provincial Park in southern Alberta Canada and the 100 anniversary of the Calgary Stampede (July 2012).
- Denis is fairly recent avid panorama photographer (since 2008) and sees strong correlation between his design and his photography works.
- He has developed a successful workflow (hardware, software, composition).
