Behind the Lens: ‘Chimping’ a photography faux pas

Bliddel,
I think it's pretty clear that I'm talking about image review or chimping in a news gathering type of setting where storytelling images might be missed by doing so.

Was going to add it, but I looked at the date and it happened in 2011 just shy of the New Year.

Introducing the Dear Lawrence community photo project: We need your help!

A few tips I've found thus far for anyone wishing to try:
First, I recommend using a wide angle to do the re-shooting. Standard polaroid sizes or smaller are usually the easiest to work with. In most cases it's usually a matter of first figuring out the correct angle in which the original photo was shot, I tend to look at buildings and sidewalks to get a good idea. Then, hold the old photo in your hand, focus on it, and walk forward or backward until the scale of the handheld image looks like it is fitting in with respect to the present day scene in the background. Then overlay the handheld image within the scene and shoot. It takes some work and the challenge is part of it. Rarely does it ever align perfectly. Feel free to email me with any questions and I'll do my best to help. nkrug@ljworld.com

Introducing the Dear Lawrence community photo project: We need your help!

Sullie, There aren't any restrictions as to where the photos need to come from. They don't even have to be shot in Lawrence. Our staff has been shooting quite a bit of old historic photos to start off with. Most of them came from downtown, but we're encouraging everyone to get into their own photo albums and try it out with old pictures of themselves or relatives or maybe a home they grew up in (just examples). I just re-shot a picture of one of my former cats. Hope this helps. There's about three weeks left at this point if you want to try it out and submit. Good luck
