Konsta Punkka features a feeling of calmness and self-assurance about him that allows him to acquire extremely close to his wild subjects. And it is not only some thing he inherited, he’s also willing to work challenging for that best shot. Just one winter season, he crawled for hours at the mouth of the cave to nail an individual shot.
Also to get these extreme close-ups you’ll need that. You may need endurance to build a bond involving both you and your subject. Punkka does that by offering animals time and energy to get accustomed to him and at times by supplying them treats.
