Most communities have some sort of historical society. Try contacting the local library, if you can't find a listing for one. Once you have tracked them down, pay a visit to them and ask to see old photos of the region. Locate an opportunity taken back as far as possible, the middle 1800's is perfect, and get a duplicate of the photo. Now take your gear, go to the same area and shoot a modern day photo etc., from the same vantage point Try to duplicate as a lot of the photo as you can... if there is a horse and buggy going down the road, include an automobile at the same area in your photo. If there are people wandering down the sidewalk, place in yours also! I'm certain you know what I mean! You're striving to reproduce as much as possible. (Don't forget to take the shot at the same time of day!)
Once you are finished, print them out side by side. This project is going to educate you more than you can ever predict! It will not only coach you on the best way to work with your gear, but it's going to teach you to look for and be observant of details. Not only that, this endeavor is well suited for kids just starting out in photography all the way through old retired pro shooters. It all depends on you and just how much detail you want to carry.
For example... In the initial photograph with folks strolling down the sidewalk... 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 that's the case the strollers are contained! We can even go deeper in case you would like to... Is it the same size family group as the first? Are they made up of the same combination? (Man, girl, three children.)
In other words, you can keep it simple - no individuals at all! Just the place. Or you also can get as complicated as you need. This endeavor is a surefire method to get known in your community - once people have seen your before and after photos. Compile them in a group and contribute a copy to the local historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.
Subsequently, do it again! Before long you will have enough of them to put together a 'then and now' type of book! Chambers of Commerce adore this sort of thing!
You ARE going to enjoy this photo project! Not only will you've got lots of fun, learn to master your equipment and create a critical photo 'eye.' You will immediately become known in the community for your photography! To find out more, assess the resources box!
