Thank you Brenda!
These guys are four months old. They have just lost a brother and never left their Mom more than few meters far.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Eastern Finland, Kainuu, Martinselkonen.
Time
In summertime, when not so hungry, brown bears walk in the evening and dark hours. In Midsommer like this, theres no total darkness at all, it is possible to shoot all night long.
Lighting
In northern part of the world the summer sunset takes hours and it continues with sunrise. The lighting is quite even in forrest areas, easy to shoot, but no so glorious.
Equipment
Canon 6D ,200mm , tripod and a hide.
Inspiration
There are not so many places to bear cubs for sure. This was my first time on a hide for bears. Only to see those glorious animals is inspiring enough.
Editing
Basic Lightroom, spreading whites and blacks using histogram, noise reduction and lens correction.
In my camera bag
Canon 6D and 7DII, Sigma 15 and 20mm, zeiss 35mm, Canon 200 and 300mm, canon tc 1,4 and 2.0,
Feedback
Just do it. Be patien and focused. There was some kind of action six hours, but this particular moment last 2 seconds.
