Behind The Lens

Location
This photo is of my first dog Maya. Back in the day we used to live in Stockholm and this image was taken on one of our daily walks in the neighbourhood. When we past this bench that someone had tagged "CAI" I thought it would be a funny photo if the text read "CAT" so I asked her to jump on the bench and pose for me.
Time
I believe it was shot sometime in the evening. Perhaps sometime around 8 PM
Lighting
The light is all available/natural light and that is thanks to those bright Swedish summer nights :)
Equipment
I shot this image with a Canon 5D mk2 and Canon 50mm f/1.8
Inspiration
The text on the bench and the sign with the dog inspired me to play with the contrast of cat vs dog.
Editing
I have removed some cigarette butts, straightened up the bench and turned the original text "CAI" into "CAT" + some overall color grading.
In my camera bag
The content in my bag depends on the situation and what Im shooting. I have four different Canon bodys (1DX2, 5D4, 5D2 & m50) and a range prime and zoom lenses from 14 mm fisheye to 600 mm. If I shoot skiing/snowboarding I usually have the 1Dx2, a 24-70 f2,8 and a 70-200 f/2,8. If I shoot concerts I usually have at least two bodys and 2-3 lenses (14-24, 24-70, 70-200), but if its open air concerts/festivals I might also use the 150-600. And sometimes prime lenses (its sometimes a good thing to have to physically move around instead of zooming).
Feedback
Be aware of your environment and look for details that can be contrast. In the case of this image the contrast is in the text and the object (cat vs dog), but it can be soft vs hard materials, light vs shadow, warm vs cold, straight vs curved and so on.
