Shooter's Comments: I spent the whole time I was taking photos of IPFW elementary education major Jamie Curtis walking to class on the ground. I wanted to emphaszse her bare feet. She participated in TOMS One Day without Shoes, to raise awareness for children around the globe who don't have shoes.

I shot this with a wide-angle lens and set the exposure to manual since I was aiming up towards the sky and didn't want to underexpose her face.
