Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in a small Bulgarian village, nearby the capital Sofia, Elin-Pelin.
Time
Afternoon
Lighting
It is natural.
Equipment
Canon t3i, kit lens
Inspiration
What inspired me to take this photo is this incredibly sweet moment that shows the human affection and connection between a human being and a pet.
Editing
I used a little bit of photoshop to sharpen and darken slightly the image in order to create a little nostalgic, yet beautifully captured portrait.
In my camera bag
two canon cameras, and two lenses
Feedback
See the beauty in the little things in your everyday life.
