“This is one of a num­ber of por­traits I shot at a pre-Christ­mas party for se­niors in Ot­tawa, which I had been in­vited to cover. I no­ticed this wo­man was not pay­ing at­ten­tion to what was go­ing on around her, and was told that she suf­fered from Alzheimer’s. I kept shoot­ing and talk­ing un­til I got her at­ten­tion. I used a black back­ground and lit the pic­ture us­ing a flash­gun with a West­cott soft­box. Much of the vis­ual ef­fect is cre­ated in post-pro­duc­tion, us­ing Pho­to­shop and Nik plug-ins.”
