Story Behind the Shot:
I went to another city to study for a Masters of Arts degree. To do this, I lived in the dorms for a while. My friends in the dorms became like sisters to me. Every night we would talk and I would take photos of them. They all loved the photos. This shot was taken about 6 months ago and shows off one of the main characters in our photo story.
Equipment: Canon EOS 7D, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L USM lens
