In the event that you have been following my daily articles, you have been working quite hard lately learning all the various photo hints and rules... Now let's try our hands at a really entertaining photo job - which may cause you to get well-known in your community! I am aware that those of us who have been bitten by the photo bug frequently wake up in the morning needing to shoot something, but we just do not know what!
Here is a project that can be carried out in a few minutes or can continue years - and it is completely up to you...

Most communities have some sort of historical society. In the event that you can not find a listing for one, try contacting the local library. Pay them a visit once you've tracked them down and request to see old photographs of the area. Locate an opportunity taken back as far as possible, the middle 1800's is ideal, and get a duplicate of the photo. Now take your equipment, go to the exact same area 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 is a horse and buggy going down the road, comprise an automobile at exactly the same place in your photo. If there are folks strolling down the sidewalk, put some people in yours also! I am certain you know what I mean! You're trying to duplicate as much as you can. (Do not forget to take the shot at the same time of day!)
Print them out side by side once you are finished. This project will educate you more than you can really ever call! It is going to instruct you to look for and be observant of details, although it'll not only coach you on the best way to work with your equipment. Not only that, this project is well suited for children just starting out in photography all the way through old retired master shooters. It all depends on you and how much detail you need to communicate.
For example... In the original photograph with people wandering down the pavement... does your photo reveal them?

A photo by a teenaged beginner may not. It's OK. Shoot at your own level! Are you more sophisticated? If that's the case the strollers are included! We may even go deeper in the event you want to... Is it the same size family group as the original? Are they made up of exactly the same mixture? (Man, woman, three kids.)
To put it differently, you can keep it simple - no individuals in the slightest! Only the location. Or you can 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 photos. Compile them into a group and contribute a copy to the local historical society, library, Chamber of Commerce.
Then, do it again! Before long you will have enough of them to put together a 'then and now' type of book! Chambers of Commerce love this kind of thing!
YOU'RE going to love this photo project! Not only will you have plenty of fun, learn to master your equipment and produce a critical photo 'eye.' You'll quickly become known in the community for your photography! To find out more, assess the resources box!
