Cambridge Pink Week

This week a lot of breast cancer awareness and charity events are taking place in Cambridge. Last Sunday they had a Pink Evening at the Sedgwick Museum site, and I went there for a while after visiting the Queens’ Art Festival. Here is a selection of my photos from the evening. Everything is shot with my old D700 and the 50 mm prime lens. No flash since I did not have it with me.

Olivia Openshaw and scary dinosaur head. One of the perks of photographing in a museum is that there are a lot of very different things you can incorporate into your pictures.

Anni Siedenburg and Narmeen Abbas. I wanted to somehow show where the photos were taken, since a party headshot can be from anywhere. You might notice some pink T-shirts or balloons sneaking their way into other pictures, where I try and provide context.

Playing with bubbles. They handed out some strange kind of soap bubble blowers that left residue everywhere. The bubbles also stuck around after landing on things, I looked really funny covered in them. No photo of that though, at least not here on the blog – yet!

Fay Offley, Georgina Collie and Vangelis Anast. I like how the pink ribbon integrates into the composition.
