Day Prime 2018

The challenge is to use as many of your lenses as possible in 2018


The idea of this challenge is inspired by Week 50, in which participants shoot with a 50mm lens for the 50th week of the year. The Challenge of Day Prime is to post pictures taken on the appropriate day for the lens - hence shots with a 16mm taken on 16 January, 28mm on 28 January and so on (after January it becomes more difficult but see the next post).

This year we are organising Day Prime on basis of weeks. Day Prime weeks run from Monday till Sunday. The focal lengths that fall in that week should be used in that week; for example: week 2 runs from Monday January 8 - Sunday January 14 and is for focal lengths from 8mm to 14mm. On what day of the week this/these FL(s) is/are used is up to you but the photos should not be made before January 8 or after January 14.

This gives you a lot more flexibility and a lot less stress! You have a whole week to use your lens(es). Of course you still can use your lens(es) on the appropriate day, but if that day doesn't suit you because of work or weather or whatever, you can make your photo on any other day of that week.


Day Prime is called a challenge, but it's very easy going:

Rules:

You can use any prime lens you like
You can use any zoom lens you like, but you can only use the zoom ends
Adapters and converters that change the FL of the lens are not allowed except for dedicated converters (such as for Sony 16/2.8) and teleconverters for FLs of 135mm and more
You are free to use A-mount and E-mount cameras
You can post as many photos as you like made on the appropriate day/in the appropriate week
You can only post the photos that were made on the appropriate day/in the appropriate week
Cropping is allowed, but the photo should reflect the focal length of the lens

Have fun!

Further notes:
Please add EXIF data: camera used, lens used, aperture, exposure, iso
You don't have to sign up: just post your photos!
You can't drop out of this challenge: you decide on the days you want to participate: the challenge is to participate on as many days as you can
It would be nice if you post your better shots also in the Sample Images subforum (for A- and E-mount lenses) or go here for samples with non-native lenses


There are 3 threads in Day Prime Challenge:

- this thread is for photos and talk (commenting on each other's contributions is encouraged and appreciated)
- a thread for the Thumbnails that all participants can (and are encouraged to) post of their photos linked to the posts containing the originals
- and a thread for outtakes aka The Training Centre


This challenge is for everyone! Everyone will learn something and everyone can enjoy it.
If you have not joined before and do not fully understand the guidelines, do not worry. Just start posting and ask as many questions as you want.

That sounds great, Leo! I think the weekly format will certainly ease things a little.

I'll still try to complete my pics on the Actual Day where possible though....

    Glad you like it guys!
    I expect loads of contributions from you.

    At the beginning of each week I will post a reminder of the focal lengths that are up for that week.

    It's Saturday January 6 and we are in week 1 now. That means that you have one more day (Sunday January 7) to make your shots with lenses of 1mm to 7mm.

    Like in the Meyer thread, another brave man going out despite the cold . A nice one Leo, thanks for kicking off. I can only join here from day 15, but will do my very best not to disappoint myself (and fellow members of course) in this challenge!

    Good to see the Meike 6,5 on Day Prime Matthew, thanks! I love that staircase shot.
    Your first 2 shots are stretching the rules a bit. : "adapters and converters that change the FL of the lens are not allowed except for dedicated converters (such as for Sony 16/2.8)"
