Behind The Lens

Location
It was taken in Prahova county, Romania, at a pretty small Zoo of Bucov's Park, located in a remote area where there are lots of trees and fresh air.
Time
I think it was taken before noon, at the beginning of autumn.
Lighting
It's been a few years since then. I think I had the sun light slight above me as I remember it and covered mostly by the tall tree in the park, but not sure. It was not to dificult to shoot this picture as I recall, and the bears were pretty close.
Equipment
I used my D-SLR Sony Alpha A300 camera and 18-250mm Tamron, my main lens. It was taken hand held, with no ND filter nor CPL, just an Hoya MC UV filter and the lens petal shape hood. No flash.
Inspiration
I love nature and wild animals and those bears were so cute and funny. I couldn't resist!
Editing
Yes, I did! I used crop and basic editing like sharpness, brightness and contrast, as I recall, as I do with most of my photos.
In my camera bag
I used to have allways in the bag my D-SLR Sony Alpha A300 camera, and my Tamron 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 IF Di II LD Macro lens, because is very usefull in most situations. Now I take with me my little Olympus PEN E-PL1 with kit lens. Which is a fun camera to use.
Feedback
I think patience, and most of all passion, are all you need. :)
