Most communities have some sort of historical society. Try contacting the local library, in case you can't find a listing for one. Once you have tracked them down, pay a visit to them and request to see old photographs of the region. Locate a shot taken back as far as the middle 1800's, possible is ideal, and get a copy of the photo. Now take your gear, go to the same spot and shoot a modern day photo from precisely the same vantage point, etc. Attempt to duplicate as much of the photo as you can... if there's a horse and buggy going down the road, include an automobile at exactly the same area in your photo. If there are people wandering down the sidewalk, put in yours too! I'm certain you know what I mean! You're attempting to duplicate as much as possible. (Don't forget to shoot the photo at the same time of day!)
Print them out side by side once you are done. This endeavor will educate you more than you can really ever predict! It'll not only teach you the way to work with your equipment, but nevertheless, it'll instruct you to try to find and be observant of details. Not only that, this endeavor is well suited for children just starting out in photography all the way through old retired expert shooters. Everything depends on you and just how much detail you want to convey.
For example... In the original photograph with people wandering down the pavement... does your photo show them?

A photo by a teenaged beginner may not. It's OK. Shoot at your own amount! Are you sophisticated? If so the strollers are included! We can even go deeper if you want to... Is it the same size family group as the original? Are they made up of exactly the same combination? (Man, girl, three children.)
To put it differently, you can keep it simple - no individuals in any respect! Only the location. Or you can definitely get as complex as you want. This endeavor is a surefire way to get known in your community - once people have seen your before and following photographs. Compile them in a group and contribute a copy to the local historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.
Subsequently, do it! Before long you'll 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 appreciate this photo job! Not only will you have plenty of fun, learn to master your gear and produce a critical photo 'eye.' You will fast become known in the community for your photography! To learn more, check the resources box!
