How did I capture this image?

  • I had the polar bear pose in front of a water backdrop!
  • I pressed my lens flat up against a glass aquarium and waited for the moment.
  • I dove into an aquarium and swam along with the bear until I got the shot.
  • I jumped in the Arctic Ocean and swam along with the polar bear, I think they were scared.
