Day Prime 2023

Believe it or not, 2023 is already the 13th year we're running the "Day Prime" challenge.

Bob J started with the idea in 2011 and Leo ran it for 8 years until 2019 when pegelli took over for 2020 and later

If you want to get inspiration from previous years here's the links to the previous ten editions:

2011
2012
2013 part 1
2013 part 2
2014
2015
2016
2017
2018
2019
2020
2021
2022




The challenge is to use as many of your lenses as possible in 2023


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 1 runs from Monday January 2 - Sunday January 8 and is for focal lengths from 2 mm to 8 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 2 or after January 8.

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.

Also because there are few lenses to use the later month of the year we made a change last year that we will do this year as well. For the month of November and December any lens over 300 mm goes anywhere in those month.


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, no others
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


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.

Day 6/7 - Meike 6.5mm F2 Circular Fisheye + A7RIV

I took an hour or so today for a trip to the Frederick Meijer Gardens. They have an international annual holidays display that was still up. Many of the these are wide-open at the minimum focus distance for all that bokeh!





















I am looking forward to using the Voigtlanders next week.

Mulchfest, Maria Hernandez Park
same lens as Mariusz, 8/2.8fish, on nex5n

8.1 dumping


8.2 the dump


8.3 chipping


8.4 spectators


The focus ring will not turn. I have the first version from ten years ago, it's old, but the grease is bad. Maybe it was fixed in version 2, I'll buy another copy. It's stuck at a little past infinity focus; at f8 and 8mm it's irrelevant, except for anything closer than one meter, which is soft. I can freelens it, holding just off the mount, and it focuses at about a foot.

"Stealthy Fish" or "Un-fishy fish"
Lines through the exact center of the lens are straight, the farther from the center the line is, the more it bends. So I try to hide the fishyness, without de-fishing in software.

8.5 Newtown Creek industry


8.6 bus

1/15sec

8.7 Mustang

1/15sec

These were single-shot hdr'd in software.

8.8 brickwork overlap

The overlapping edge brickwork is interesting, this is an old Industrial building.
I missed twice, I clipped the bottom just a little, and I'm leaning by a degree or two.

More 210 degrees angle of view of this remarkable 4mm fish. When I bought it last year I was planning to use it on A7R4 (I was naive as the battery compartment/hand hold of the camera was in view) so I bought an A6100 kit on the cheap which I actually like very much. The lens is very difficult to use, fingers and feet constantly appear in the viewfinder. The fingers I have resolved by using a macro sliding bar mounted under the camera as handhold and using the 2 seconds timer (finger on the trigger can easily extend into view). The feet remain an issue.

Saint John's Church in Gouda is the longest church in The Netherlands and world famous for its stained glass windows.

4.3: Sint Janskerk, Gouda

Camera Model: ILCE-6100
Lens: Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye
Aperture: f/8
Exposure Time: 0.033 sec (1/30)
ISO: 400

4.4: Sint Janskerk, Gouda

Camera Model: ILCE-6100
Lens: Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye
Aperture: f/8
Exposure Time: 0.033 sec (1/30)
ISO: 320

4.5: Sint Janskerk, Gouda

Camera Model: ILCE-6100
Lens: Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye
Aperture: f/8

Camera Model: ILCE-6100
Lens: Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye
Aperture: f/8
Exposure Time: 0.005 sec (1/200)

I had to de-feet this one by using a circular black filter in post, which on circular fishes is like cropping. It feels like cheating!
