Day Prime 2020

The challenge is to use as many of your lenses as possible in 2020


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).

Day Prime is organised 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 6 - Sunday January 12 and is for focal lengths from 6 mm to 12 mm. 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 6 or after January 12.

This means 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 the Sony E16/2.8 and/or FE28/2) 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 and minor straightening 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


Day Prime Challenge has two threads. This one is for photos and comments; you can also post photos of the gear you are using; and there's a 2020 Training Centre for your out-of-challenge contributions.

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.

List of dates for January until June (Other months to follow later 'as time progresses')
Since a new year starts on a different day of the week every year the "groupings" of focal lengths (lenses) within one week will be slightly different from last year.

Glad to be of service Fred, and I'm a heavy user of day prime myself as well. For these first three month I only have weeks 1, 11 and 12 off

Later it gets more quiet

No such luck for me. 12 weeks, 32 focal lengths to cover, no time off   

Edit: Week 1 off, don't have anything below 10 mm.

I don't believe luck has anything to do with it Paul. GAS may be?

For me 11 weeks with 18 FL's in the first quarter.
29 FL's in total for the year, excluding TC's for 135mm and more. That would bring the total far over 30 FL's.

Yes, GAS is the problem. I'm sort of cured now.

For my "training" I went slightly north, to the redoubt of Schilde, for the actual 12 mm shots today (best day in the weather forecast this week) I went slightly south, to the Fort of Oelegem. Unfortunately you can't get inside the fort most days and currently it's even a no-go zone for the people who control the fort to make sure they don't disturb the thousands of hibernating bats that stay there over winter.


12-1: Facade



12-2: Entrance hallway



12-3: Bomb crater, just north of the fort (just cleaned up to double as a pool for amphibians)

Yesterday I went to the indoor ski track in Zoetermeer during my lunch break. Built on the slopes of the former municipal waste dump, not a very inspiring area, but the building itself has some appeal. The sun was out, it was cold and windy. The next couple of days the weather will be problematic again.

I think the left and top of the image suffers from misalignment. I would like to have a Lensbaby Scout as optic holder as the Composer has tilt adjustment and is extremely difficult to adjust straight. But alas, no affordable Scout to be found. I think I will improvise something on M42 helicoid adapter.

Camera Model: ILCE-7RM2
Lens: Lensbaby Composer and Fisheye 12/4

Today Sigma 12-24 II.
The building on the left is Hudson 99. The tallest building in New Jersey - 270m. So 12mm on full frame fulfilled its role.
