Most communities have some type of historical society. Try contacting the local library in the event you can not locate a listing for one. Pay them a visit, once you've tracked them down and ask to see old photographs of the area. Find an opportunity taken back as far as the middle 1800's, possible is perfect, and get a duplicate of the photo. Now take your gear, go to the same spot and shoot a modern day photo etc., from the same vantage point Attempt to duplicate as much of the photo as you can... if there's a horse and buggy going down the street, include a car at the same area in your photo. If there are folks strolling down the pavement, place some folks in yours too! I'm certain you know what I mean! You're striving to replicate as much as possible. (Don't forget to take the shot at the same time of day!)
Once you're done, print them out side by side. This project will educate you more than you can really ever call! It's going to teach you to search for and be observant of details, although it will not only educate you on how to work with your equipment. Not only that, this job is well suited for kids just starting out in photography all the way through old retired expert shots. It all depends on you and just how much detail you want to communicate.
For example... In the first photograph with folks strolling down the pavement... does your photo reveal them?

A photo by a teenaged beginner may not. It's OK. Shoot at your own amount! Are you more advanced? If so the strollers are contained! We may even go deeper in the event that you want to... Is it the same size family group as the first? Are they made up of the same combination? (Man, woman, three children.)
In other words, you can keep it simple - no folks in any respect! Only the place. Or you'll be able to get as sophisticated as you need. This endeavor is a surefire method to get known in your community - once people have seen your before and after pictures. Compile them in a collection and donate a copy to the neighborhood historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.
Then, do it again! Before long you'll have enough of them to put together a 'then and now' type of publication! Chambers of Commerce adore this kind of thing!
YOU'RE going to enjoy this photo job! Not only will you have a great deal of fun, learn to master your gear and develop a critical photo 'eye.' You'll quickly become known locally for your photography! To learn more, assess the resources box!
