Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken in my garden. My dog sat in front of a round conifere. I'm able to tell her to move backwards, which she did here, until she sat right inside the hedge. It's a very soft hedge and there was a gap where she fit in.
Time
It was right in the middle of the day with an overcast sky.
Lighting
The picture was shot with available light on an overcast day.
Equipment
Camera: Fujifilm X-M1 Lens: Fujinon 35 mm No tripod or any other equipment used
Inspiration
My dog Scout is a very trusting dog and she does a lot for me when posing for pictures. She is relaxed and cool and eager to please, always knowing that she will get a reward for it. Therefore, I'm able to come up with some quirky, funny shots that look a bit unusual.
Editing
Some of the needles of the conifer were dry and brown. I painted these parts green in Photoshop. I also filled up some gaps in the green, but only slightly. Furthermore, I did the usual processing steps like enhancing contrast and colours.
In my camera bag
I love to keep it simple and to have light-weight and handy equipment with me. I'm a Fujifilm X photographer. Therefore, I always have my Fujifilm X-T1 or my Fujifilm X-M1 with me. When on Client sessions, I take my Fujifilm X-Pro2 with me. I love prime lenses. My favourite lenses are the Fujinon 90mm and the Fujinon 35mm and the Fujinon 18mm.
Feedback
When working with dogs make sure you are patient and calm. Make sure the dog has fun. Go down on eye level, or even better, below that. Try to attract the dog's attention with low volume noises like humming or hissing or saying some of the dog's favourite word's. If the dog is not interested in noises, try treats or toys.
