Wonderful capture of a great subject! Mia is a cutie!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photograph was taken on our patio of our new dog "Mia" sitting on a chair.
Time
Early morning capture with overcast sky.
Lighting
Lighting was superb, low light and clear day which produced a very nice contrast for this photo without any glare.
Equipment
My camera is a Nikon D5000 and I used a 300mm lens. I did not set up a tripod as I was trying to capture her expression from different angles and wanted to be ready for the moment.
Inspiration
Love was the inspiration. New puppy, she is a beautiful dog with great markings. Her expression was a winner, she warmed and stole my heart instantly.
Editing
Minimal processing, simple fine tuning.
In my camera bag
I pack my Nikon D5000 and what I consider to be essentials. I always keep an extra battery, Scandisk, cleaning solution and cloth, lens covers, and a rain duck for protection. I recently switched to a Tamron 16-300mm as my "go to" lens and I always carry my Nikon 18-55 mm. My iPhone is my "second" camera and has proved to be a wonderful back up.
Feedback
Patience and timing always helps when trying to capture shots of animals. The "perfect" photograph (in my opinion) involves the proper lighting and framing of the subject. Taking multiple shots from different angles improves your chances of capturing the optimal, diverse and interesting images.
