Rita Blais, the Cancer Survivior and a Tattoo Story

The story of Rita Blais is an opening part of a Cancer Survivor series run by A-Morning Ottawa. It was produced and fronted by Tony Grace.

I shot it in Rita's living room with available light only. It was classic example of the north looking window on the sunny day lighting situation - good flood of ambient light. The light behind Rita in the head shot is natural tungsten, I did not bother to compensate for the colour temperature. I do actually like that warm punch the household lights give to the shot when I am shooting at higher temperatures, 4600K and above.

The tattoing viz was taken from Rita's DVD, courtesy Rita Blais.
