Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at Chester Zoo, England
Time
Mid-afternoon, around 2-3pm
Lighting
It was quite a sunny day and so the photo used only natural light
Equipment
I used a Panasonic LUMIX G1, hand-held with 200mm zoom lens
Inspiration
It was a great opportunity when the cubs decided to sleep all together near the viewing area. I thought the close view with only a mass of fur worked perfectly
Editing
Other than using slight amendments to brightness and contrast etc. the only editing I did was to remove a twig that went over one cubs ear
In my camera bag
I hold a change of lens, from the standard 14-55mm to a 70-200mm zoom. Other than that I have a spare battery and memory card. Basically, only the essentials but it has always been enough
Feedback
Always look out for any photographic opportunities, regardless of what the subject is, keeping an open mind. You never know what may be round the next corner.
