Élections 2012, jour 24: Pauline Marois

C’était le jour où le PQ dévoilait finalement son cadre financier. J’étais cependant là principalement pour la seconde photo ci-bas, une interview en face à face avec une journaliste de la Presse Canadienne. Sur 2 petits kilomètres, j’ai dû apprivoiser un environnement très peu propice à la photographie: très étroit, fenêtre créant un arrière plan surexposé très laid, véhicule en mouvement, etc… De plus, les différentes surfaces autours de madame Marois, incluant la vitre et un écran de télévision, rendait l’utilisation du flash, pour balancer la lumière, très périlleux.
