This is the training centre aka Outtakes thread of Day Prime 2020.
Maybe there are more people like me who want to get the feel of a lens (again) and experiment a bit.

Day Prime is a great challenge but there is a limited time slot for each FL. You have to be there on that day/in that week, or wait another year ...

This thread lets you post on other days too. And lets you post shots that you don't want to post in the main photo thread.

And here is a link to the main day prime thread for 2020

Comments are allowed and even encouraged, both in the main thread as well as here . There is no separate "talk thread" for day prime, like with the prime months or week 50.

Today I went training with my Voigtländer 12/5.6 in the woods nearby and the partly blown up redoubt of Schilde. 12 mm is kind of special and takes some time to get into. Overall I think it went OK, some of these scenes might even come back next week in the main thread.

1: Wood pond



2: Fallen trunk



3: Main hall of the redoubt



4: Behind the main hall



5: Side hall (don't walk too far or you'll drop a floor down)



6: Unbelievable, a small side casemate without graffiti


All A7ii + Voigtländer Ultra Wide Heliar 12/5.6 @ f11
All shots from a tripod, inside "light painted" with a large battery led flood light

Good start and great location Pieter! (not sure if we are supposed to comment here)

I just tried to get some inspiration for Day 12 as well with the Lensbaby 12mm Fisheye. Bought it last year just after Day 12, so it's pretty new to me. With dark and wet conditions outside, already in the desperation indoor mode to explore the lens .

12mm #1


12mm #2


12mm #3


12mm #4


A99ii + Lensbaby composer pro + Fisheye 12mm (with F8 aperture)

Comments are no problem here Fred, I've added that to the introductory post now. I like your lensbaby fisheye macro lens , especially the model car looks almost real inside an old grungy garage.

Thanks Pieter. I'll pass on the compliment about the grungy garage to my wife

I think I need some more training in bird photography with LAOWA FE 10-18 mm F4.5-5.6 C-Dreamer...

Two-barred crossbill(s?) (Loxia leucoptera) in a larch

α7R III + LAOWA FE 10-18 mm F4.5-5.6 C-Dreamer @ 10 mm, f/?, 1/1600 s, ISO 2000

I'll post better pictures of that species taken with longer lenses later in other threads.

Next week is 20, 21 and 24 mm.
Especially 20 and 21 are uncommon for me, so I went out with one of my least lenses today, a Tokina 21/3.8 I picked up for 10 € in 2015 and only resulted in 30 photo's since I bought it

I hope I will find an opportunity for 24 mm training this week as well we'll see.


T21-1: Fallen Tree



T21-2: Through the woods



T21-3: Vrieselhof castle



T21-4: Pond



T21-5: Sluice bunker in the pre WW1 anti-tank canal


All on an A7ii

I didn't manage to use my 25mm lens during week 4, but since I also didn't change my lenses for week 5, I still had it on my camera today and used it so I can at least post it here as an outtake...

25.1

Sony ILCE-7RM2 + Voigtlander Color Skopar 25mm F4 | f/8 | 1/2500 sec | ISO 200
