Then and Now



Well . . . since I did not have a human helper . . . and I could not get the goats or the dog or the cats to help on this project :) . . . this photo shows the set-up I used for photographing my Then & Now photo for The Family Curator's genealogy photo challenge for World Photography Day . . . which is the 19th day of August . . . I started out with my photo holder sitting on the top tier of this little step-ladder . . . but the hot summer breezes soon taught me a lesson . . . and the photo holder toppled over . . . and I had a torn photo! . . . because of the necessity of figuring out a photo holder for this project, I had already decided to use copies instead of originals . . . so the torn photo was not a big deal . . . I wound up using my little Kodak Z1012 for this photo session . . . it frequently malfunctions (zooms in and out and powers off . . . all by itself) . . . so I have not used it in a while . . . but it worked right today . . . and it worked great for this project . . .

  2. It's that "necessity is the mother of invention" trait! :) . . . this was done across the street from my house, so this set-up was not a problem . . . now I'm toying with an idea for some little doo-dads / photo holders like these (maybe using wire coat-hangers?) that mayhaps I can use in conjunction with my extra tripod when I'm away from home . . . the height would be easy to adjust that way . . . hmmm . . .
