My latest video is about the rules in street photography. These are my guidelines for shooting in public, what to shoot and how to shoot.

    Hei Matti,

    thank you for your interesting videos, for instance the one on Rules of Street.

    I enjoy photography as an amateur, doing mostly street snapshots, portraits and architectural or landscape compositions. I worked in Estonia for 4 years, and then in Finland for 3 years before retiring. Since then, I’ve been a volunteer in Internet governance, citizen journalism and some other things. I live in France.

    Right now I’m looking for a Lumix GM5. It seems Panasonic have stopped producing this model. Would you happen to have any leads, either to a new one still hidden in some shop, or a second-hand one in very good condition? I would be grateful for any advice.

    Here’s one in a series of articles I did for WikiTribune, as a community contributor,

    Kiitos paljon.

    • Thanks for your comment.
      I’m afraid, I don’t know where to get the GM5. Maybe second hand?
      Interesting article that, I have to read it properly once I’m done with my next video.

  2. Hi Matti, recently in the UK a photographer was assaulted very badly and his camera destroyed, apparently because he took a shot of a couple kissing, even though he subsequently offered to delete the photograph. I wanted to share this because it makes you ‘Rules of Street’ very real. Thankfully, the above is a rare occurrence but none the less something that street photographers are aware of. I think your guidelines are very poignant for many reasons, not least of all the ones that you mention so thank you for sharing.

    • Like you say, that kind of conflict is rare, but can happen. It’s wise to be be very discreet when photographing intimate moments like kissing. Thanks for your comment.
