However, I forgot about it for a while but today I found a video on YouTube that reminded me to do this again anytime in the future. I know some sources where I can find all kind of old public domain images of my town. At least one thing is easy about this kind of photography because if you find very old photos of your town, they are in many cases already public domain (copyright can expire after many years) and that means you can even upload them for a comparison to your blog.
If I do then and now photography more often in the future, it might happen that I write about this in more detail. But this post here is not about my experience because I shot only one comparison photo and need to collect more experience. I just write about it again as I was reminded by the video on YouTube that I should not forget about it, because I like the idea of comparing old and new photos.
But now about the video I found. I follow all kind of photography related channels on YouTube. One of my favorite channels is DigitalRev TV because their videos don’t come with pure facts, they are also entertaining and humorous but still related to photography. I will embed the video I talked about below, but I can suggest you to check out their other videos as well.
The guy in the video is called Kai Wong, I think you can find him in all of their videos. He is often criticized for his dry sense of humor in the YouTube comment section. I don’t understand that because I like his sense of humor, everyone has a different sense for humor. There are channels on YouTube that only teach you facts and they are great too, but DigitalRev seems to have a concept to mix facts with entertainment and documentary. I’d suggest to check it out.
