Harbour Island, Bahamas.

I’m currently in Vegas for WPPI, but the last week I’ve been in the Bahamas. Let’s just say it was hard to leave. You will see plenty more from this wedding when I get back home.

Oh, and the container with the little girl on is not chili sauce, it is salt. :) Although I use that container almost every day I never realized it was so pretty. Thank you.

Film Travels

I travel quite a lot and I’ve found that I rarely whip out my digital camera anymore. And that’s a shame. To maintain your style, you want to keep shooting all the time, and it should be for fun. So in September last year I bought myself a medium format film camera, a Contax 645, and started taking photos for fun again, capturing the small things I saw around me, re-discovering colours and looking for compositions. In January this year I attended the Film Is Not Dead workshop in Melbourne with Jonathan Canlas.

These images were taken the last six months in Bali, Mexico, Sweden, NYC and Australia.

They’re all shot with the Contax 645 with a Planar 80mm f/2.0 and are straight out of camera. I used mainly Fuji 400H and one roll of Kodak Portra 400. Richard’s Photo Lab in LA developed and scanned the images.

Tomorrow I leave again. This time for for NYC, The Bahamas and WPPI in Las Vegas.

The Contax won’t leave my side.

February 10, 2011 - 2:25 pm

Angela Higgins - These are breathtakingly beautiful Jonas. Just beautiful :)

February 10, 2011 - 2:27 pm

Paul Von Rieter - All this does is confirm the fact that you are a lengend.

and jonathan canlas is one sexy beast.

February 10, 2011 - 2:28 pm

Paul Von Rieter - it also confirms the fact that I can not spell LEGEND. ugh. lol

February 10, 2011 - 2:28 pm

Vanessa Paris - What Angela said. Love. Can I ask a silly question? How do you get film images on your blog? DO you scan them?

February 10, 2011 - 2:30 pm

alyda - really great jonas

February 10, 2011 - 2:30 pm

Jenn - U are so my hero. I cant wait for Jon’s workshop in Seattle come July!

February 10, 2011 - 2:30 pm

fer juaristi - killer set, RPL rules, loving your film eye brother.

February 10, 2011 - 2:30 pm

samm - jonas! these are AMAZINGGG!! I love all of them!!! that girls feet with the apple.. ! and the girl with the stripey top!! ;) so cool to see your perspective through this camera! LOVE that corner building shot in NY.

February 10, 2011 - 2:31 pm

Jonas - angela: the lab scans them for you (if you want)

February 10, 2011 - 2:33 pm

Courteney Rodda - These are stunning. You’ve got such an amazing gift.

February 10, 2011 - 2:34 pm

Nathan Parker - Holy cow! Film has such a rich, ‘real’, look to it. Amazing set of images, Jonas. It would make a bunch of sweet wall-art!

February 10, 2011 - 2:34 pm

Luis Godinez - Really great stuff.

February 10, 2011 - 2:36 pm

Alicia Kennison - There’s just something awesome about film. Everytime I see it I get the urge to take out my old yashica again.

Nice work Jonas. :)

February 10, 2011 - 2:39 pm

Tim Coulson - You dirt bag. Why you gotta be so good. Ha, love this stuff.

February 10, 2011 - 2:45 pm

alisa greig - crazy beautiful!–when is your film workshop? :)

February 10, 2011 - 2:54 pm

Leah Kua - Truly exquisite Jonas. Seeing things through your eyes makes me happy :)

February 10, 2011 - 2:55 pm

Leah Kua - Quick question, for all the ones you took outside of the workshop – were you using the sekonic or the in camera meter?

February 10, 2011 - 2:57 pm

janine kaye - oh my Jonas! You are amazing. There is something quite surreal about seeing the images of a scene you were actually present at,.. seeing the way you saw it through your camera is fabulous! My heart actually skipped a beat when I saw my Lucy girl amongst your amazing images. You are blessed with an amazing gift and I am so glad I got to meet you and witness it. xxxxx

February 10, 2011 - 3:04 pm

Jonas Seaman - I love to see how you’re always growing.

February 10, 2011 - 3:11 pm

Gemma - life looks full of wonder through your Contax camera. Happy travels dude!

February 10, 2011 - 3:12 pm

cole - Wicked. And totally fits the style of all the rest of your work. I’m buying a piggy bank and loading it up until I can buy a kick-ass medium format.

February 10, 2011 - 3:14 pm

David Moore - These are the goods Jonas! Film + Jonas = Extra Awesomeness.

February 10, 2011 - 3:18 pm

Lauren - I love seeing the world through your eyes! and not just because you have seen way more of it than me :) mostly because you capture things with such honesty and realism the viewer takes away a little of the experience with them, just superb!

February 10, 2011 - 3:19 pm

Wade Collins - LOL! This is just crazy!! It doesn’t get any better Jonas, wonderful vision! Jonathan looks happy as well.

February 10, 2011 - 3:21 pm

manus - these are great jonas.

February 10, 2011 - 3:30 pm

fiona andersen - oh lord I think I just choked when I saw Jonathan’s shot….that HAS to be his new profile shot. You my friend are the MASTER!!!! I salut you x

February 10, 2011 - 3:36 pm

Katie - These are incredible Jonas!! Love love love them! Any tips for metering for landscapes? You’re so spot on! Ps did u get ur Contax screen brightened? I literally have half my images out of focus per roll and that’s worrisome. :(

February 10, 2011 - 3:49 pm

Jonas - Katie: All the landscapes were shot using the camera meter. Since I shot 400H I overexposed them roughly 2 stops. I haven’t bought the brighter screen yet, but I will. I had MANY shots out of focus too.

Leah: I started using the Sekonic at the workshop.

February 10, 2011 - 4:01 pm

Kristin - wonderful!! really beautiful, something extra special about film! I can’t wait to attend the Canlas workshop over summer! I was curious about focusing too, sounds like it’s a tad difficult to get in focus…

February 10, 2011 - 4:09 pm

Anya - Have just fallen in love with your photos all over again. Love them and makes me want to try film!

February 10, 2011 - 4:27 pm

Stew - Nice work man! So happy to see others shooting film still :)

February 10, 2011 - 4:36 pm

Anya - ps your little ones looks like a little ginger bread man, so cute I could eat him!!!

February 10, 2011 - 5:00 pm

Catherine Abegg - Just when I thought you couldn’t get any better, you bust out the film camera… NICE. (and Jon & Tavis are both so silly. tho thilly!!!)

February 10, 2011 - 5:57 pm

joanna brown - wowowowwowowowowowowowowowow love these, the light is so crisp, looks like they have been sprinkled lightly with grain and texture… great to see your journey with film FAB.joanna

February 10, 2011 - 6:04 pm

Annette Wilson - as IF!

Awesome images JP!

February 10, 2011 - 10:58 pm

Dennis Pike - Good stuff Jonas, definitely a certain quality to these.

February 10, 2011 - 11:23 pm

Rashmi - I think Annette Wilson (in the comments above) said it best : Thanks for depressing me beyond belief you amazing amazehead. Yeah. That’s how I feel. I will now go bury my camera and hang up my hat. Amazoid work.

February 10, 2011 - 11:34 pm

Caroline Ghetes - Wow! These are all amazing. I just love Jonathan, and you must have had the time of your life at that workshop. He has a heart of gold.

February 10, 2011 - 11:59 pm

Eric Kotara - Wow Jonas, what lovely images. I love shooting film for personal work too and have long considered a Contax as a way to make it easier (currently shooting an m645). It is always so nice to get the film back after you have let go the experience of recording the image; like seeing the image again in the viewfinder.

February 11, 2011 - 1:55 am

aileen reilly - fellow FINDer here. lovely images Jonas. look forward to meeting you at WPPI.

February 11, 2011 - 2:06 am

February 11, 2011 - 2:48 am

Joshua Gull - Sweet jesus Jonas. Nice work. Very nice.

February 11, 2011 - 3:05 am

nadine austin - They’re gorgeous.
What I found interesting is that your composition style is different in this set from what I’ve gotten used to.

February 11, 2011 - 5:29 am

Will Pursell Photo - amazing images! That last shot is priceless!

February 11, 2011 - 6:55 am

ken kienow - fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhhhhh.

wow.

February 11, 2011 - 9:03 am

Madelene - Det här är helt fantastiskt. Jag tappar andan. Och gråter glädjetårar.

February 12, 2011 - 10:17 am

Shu - Every single shot is flawless. U’re amazing!! ;)

February 12, 2011 - 1:04 pm

juliet - wow. i love these!!! you are right that it’s so important to shoot for fun and for yourself. i have been trying to do that lately too! :D

i love your work!!

February 12, 2011 - 4:51 pm

sherry - Beautiful! Love the Contax! So…when you travel with it, do you keep things simple and use the in camera meter, or an external light meter?

February 12, 2011 - 5:50 pm

morenica - Ok, you and Jonathan had convinced me! I’ll try to use a Zenith camera that is kept somewhere at home. Let’s see what I can do with it ;)
By the way, the photos are amazingly beautiful, no matter digital or film camera you use. Bravo Jonas!!!

February 13, 2011 - 1:24 am

Brian Kraft - Loverly! The film is looking good. Nice little tour around the world. Enjoy your next set of adventures!

February 13, 2011 - 5:19 am

Chanelle - I keep watching the Contax 645′s when they come up on eBay and I haven’t actually taken the plunge. I would love to though. Been in love with the look of Jose & Elizabeth’s work on that camera for a couple years. These shots are lovely. I love the colour and yet they are still YOUR style. nice.

February 13, 2011 - 12:16 pm

Kristem - Stupid question.. but isn’t medium format film square? Lovely stuff.

February 14, 2011 - 4:52 am

Jorge Tortajada - Wonderful set! Amaznig images!

February 14, 2011 - 4:15 pm

February 16, 2011 - 8:10 am

Alice - thoroughly enjoyed going through these now that i’ve been playing with a contax myself! love the NYC images.

February 17, 2011 - 12:12 pm

Thomas Lester - Amazing what a lack of an anti-aliasing filter and a good film stock will look like. Add to that your great style and eye for composition and you have some really fantastic images. What did they poeple on the airplane do when you whipped out the 645? I can just imagine everyone with their camera phones and you bust out the beast to get a window shot. ;-)

February 17, 2011 - 1:17 pm

KMS - love, love, love all of these images. will always be in awe of film and now so inspired to get a contax. :)

February 18, 2011 - 7:18 am

Fotograf Annelie - When I go back to Sweden again on holiday I’ll bring my old Hasselblad back here to London. Love that feeling to wait and see the results of shooting with film.

February 18, 2011 - 10:02 am

David Robertson - farout man! amazing work!

February 23, 2011 - 5:08 am

David Galloway - outstanding work! Love your portraits

February 23, 2011 - 12:14 pm

Jauhien Sasnou - Great work!

One thing made me think and wonder. These “straight out of camera” film scans are pretty consistent with your digital work, mix it up and I will have hard time telling the difference. Is it something RPL did specifically for you, based on the look of your work?

Jauhien

February 24, 2011 - 4:58 am

Stacy - I want to be in the top picture right now. I might give an arm or a leg to be laying in that hammock on the beach. Sigh. Alas I’m in PA, USA freezing my tail end off. :(

February 28, 2011 - 2:51 pm

wedding videographer brisbane - Amazing series of pictures, keep up the great work, I enjoy looking at you updates

is there any chance you can pass a message onto Sammy and Mandy for me? My cousin is getting married in Bali this year and we are looking for the cane/bamboo lanterns that are on the tables but can’t seem to find them!

I would love to get in touch with Sammy and Mandy to find out where they got the lanterns from?

You can have them contact me on my email – [email protected]

thanks!
Angela.
