Stefanie Mavrakou literally woke up looking like this. She was at a Robinson May Ball the evening before, and just took a quick nap before meeting up just before lunch for a photoshoot on the Cam. We were joined by Lucy McMahon who managed to fit us in between two of her morning Yoga teaching sessions. We acquired a punt from King’s College and headed south towards the area around Darwin College.
For all my photos this Cambridge trip I used a 50 mm prime lens. Here I was shooting most photos wide open at f/1.4 to create a blurry background to make the dancers stand out better. The harsh sunlight meant I was shooting at around 1/4000s and ISO 64.
My next photoshoot was with some people from Pink Week. Nikhil Banerjee had showed up early, and helped us punting for a bit, allowing us to photograph at a few new spots.
