So cool.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken while walking on the island of Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. This guy was protesting loudly on a low roof patio and looking very soulful, so I took 9 frames, and this one had the expression I wanted to capture. The frame has been cropped to get rid of an ugly PVC pipe.
Time
This happened at about five in the afternoon.
Lighting
The light was extra harsh sunlight from a cloudless sky. I didn't use any flash, but the white walls of the building reflected quite a lot. The sunlight was also already coming from an agle, it was afternoon.
Equipment
I used Fujifilm X-T1 and the standard kit lens, which is pretty decent. This was taken at 55 mm, f/8.0 and 1/550 s. Plenty of light available.
Inspiration
The dog was completely dedicated to barking at me and my wife and he had a great expression. He also couldn't get at me but I could get near enough to take a "portrait".
Editing
This frame is relative mildly post-processed in Lightroom 5, just some exposure and color adjustment. Even color balance is as shot. Cropping is probably the most post-processing done here.
In my camera bag
I have a very light travelling bag, just X-T1, the 16-55 2.8-4.0 kit lens, the tiny Fuji flash and a ND filter, which I haven't used that much. I also carry a lens cloth, and occasionally a very light Profoto tripod, which is really not steady enough in windy conditions.
Feedback
The catch of this photo is the expression of the dog, and after that, the lighting that brings out the structure of the dog's hair out and produces the shadow. The final cropping is where this photo got the balance between the white and blue background, and between the dog and his shadow.
