There are boring cameras and great cameras and, every once in a while, truly eccentric cameras. I seem to like the eccentric ones best.
It's a channel by Matti Sulanto. He's a Finnish photographer who is also a Lumix Ambassador. That means he shoots with a lot of Panasonic gear and also reviews it on his site. I like that.
But what I really like about his channel on YouTube are the videos he does of his "photo walks." On many of them he takes only one camera and one lens and, in between shooting and showing images he's taking, he talks through his own process for both finding subjects to photograph and working within the constraints of the gear he decided to bring along. More "how" than "what gear?"
While he is a Lumix ambassador there is never a hard "sell" for the equipment. The discussions are always centered on what he uses the gear for, how he chooses his gear, and the end results.
The nice production value and lack of hysterical video trash make an engagement with Matti's V-Log feel more like you were sitting down in his living room discussing some fun, new gear over coffee. Or like you had decided to go for a stroll with Matti and find out how he takes the images he does.
I keep being guided to comfortable photography sites by friends and blog readers here. These eight-to-ten minute programs are a welcome break from bad news and relentless merchandizing.
Please check out Matti Sulanto's YouTube offerings. Today's video takes place on a cold and snowy day in his part of the world. It's best enjoyed along with a warm cup of coffee and light pastry.

One more thing....I really like his accent.
More fun sites discoveries to come!
