This one is here to poke a little fun at myself. I think it’s becoming a ‘thing’ so here’s the evolution of the JAMIECHANCETRAVELS hand hold over the last few years.
The ‘hand hold’ for me has to be one of my most-used photography styles across my travel blog. It has become, unfortunately for me, something of a ‘thing’ where you will no doubt have seen many a Instagram story, many a photo on here featuring my hand holding something; most likely a beer or a coffee.
Honestly, I love this style of photography (if you can even call it a style?) as it’s one of the ways to make my photos seem a little more personal. I don’t share too many photos of myself though I’m sure someone could recognise me by my left hand, god you’ve got to laugh haven’t you!
Looking back through the last five years worth of photos (it’s easy when you use my photography workflow and Lightroom collections), I’ve been able to narrow down a selection of the most epic of my ‘hand-holding’ photos and share them here for you today. I can’t seem to pin point the moment in time when this became a jamiechancetravels thing but the earliest photo I’ve got here to share is from March 2018. That was in the Blue Mountains, Australia and from there we go to the Whitsunday Islands, Rockhampton, Perth, through Singapore, Thailand & Bali, all the way through to the present day. There’s a good mix of subjects but the stand outs are clearly burgers, beers and coffee as well as my Paynter Jacket (I love that jacket can you tell).
In terms of lenses, I’ve found that the Fujifilm 16mm f/1.4, 18mm f/1.4 and the 23mm f/1.4 (at a push) are the best for creating that classic jamiechancetravels hand hold shot.
Anyway, without further ado, let’s check out the photos…
