I was asked yesterday by Varsity’s Editor and News Editor to accompany them on King’s Parade to take some ‘staged’ photos to use for this week’s cover of Varsity. The story is about introducing a reading week into Cambridge’s 8-week terms, on the basis that it would better support students with disabilites or mental health conditions, as well as giving all students time to explore their subject further without the pressure of work. It was a particular windy day but then the sun came out! I used manual focus on the camera to get a shallow depth of field and thought about the backgrounds very carefully, producing a mixture of landscape and portrait shots. Here are some of the results:
