Day Prime 2024

Believe it or not, 2024 is already the 14th 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 editions:

2011
2012
2013 part 1
2013 part 2
2014
2015
2016
2017
2018
2019
2020
2021
2022
2023



The challenge is to use as many of your lenses as possible in 2024


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 1 - Sunday January 7 and is for focal lengths from 1 mm to 7 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 1 or after January 7.

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 in 2022 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, others per non-alpha guidelines
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.

So. I'll have to bring out the 4mm fish to start yet another year of prime madness.

Me and my girlfriend went to Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar, The Netherlands. We went to see the Anselm Kiefer exhibition. The last time we where there was on our second date (little over three months ago) and in the swimming pool I stole my first little kiss.


First the permanent collection (Laowa 4mm f/2.8 Circular Fisheye on the modest A6100, I love the weirdness of this little gem):

1: Selfie in the Swimming Pool


2: Leandro Erlich, 2016, Swimming Pool


3: Richard Serra, 2007-2008, Open Ended


4: Ron Mueck, 2013, Couple under an Umbrella


And then what we came for:

5: Anselm Kiefer, 2014-2017, Samson (l), 2023, Herbst (r)


6: Anselm Kiefer, Bicycle


7: Anselm Kiefer, tetraptych with bicycles


8: Anselm Kiefer, Museum Voorlinden Hall 6


9: Anselm Kiefer, 2019, Sichelschnitt

Nice series with that 4 mm Paul, especially 6, 8 and 9.
But the two happy smiling faces in #1 made my day!

Great place for such an important event, Paul! I hope many more will follow

Very nice series of Voorlinden and Kiefer (sometimes I regret having left The Hague :-)).

My Day 7:

I, Ik, Ich: egocentrism made visible

Thanks Leo. I discovered Voorlinden through your images. Been there several times, I love the vibe there and the swimming pool always gets me smiling.

That lovely 7.5mm fish has eluded me. Makes great planets!

Another great start Leo


Today we started week 2 for f/l between 8 and 14 mm.

Since I sold my 12 mm it will only be a 10 mm APS-C zoom-end for me this week, but I do hope to see many more photos from others in this range

I think the pool should be renamed to "Paul's pool of love"

Use a tripod and take long exposures and then the lack of daylight may not be that big problem anymore?

And personally I got only one 14 mm lens for this week, as my wider option (LAOWA 10-18 @ 10 mm) has been sold or perhaps more accurately traded...

My 10 mm crop, from a walk through the park around castle Hallehof (Halle-Zoersel, Belgium)


10-1: Foreground stump



10-2: Poor mans shift option of the castle (keep camera vertical and straight, then only use the top square)



10-3: After all the rain the past weeks the park had quite a few ice-floors



10-4: Leaves and barn


All A6000 + E10-18/4 @ 10 mm

That's it for this week, next week I'll be much busier with a 15, 16, 17, two 20's and two 21's. Not sure I have time to use them all

Two of three lenses this week, APS-C, I haven't used my nex-3 in a year, and the shutter sound is worse (yes that's possible LOL) like it's a death rattle, but still functional....

Walkabout last night, rainy, didn't take tripod, then the rain stopped of course LOLz ... Samyang (mine says Rokinon) 12/2 ... I forget how awesome this lens is, the Laowa 9/2.8 is smaller and wider, but both focus to within three inches of the lens hood, which is spectacular!

12.1 the Banyan of Round Lake


Walkabout this moning with an old copy of Samyang (mine says Rokinon) 8/2.8 fisheye, equally spectacular size and close focus ...
8.1 (No Common Name) Copernica berteroana - backlit


8.2 (No Common Name) Copernica berteroana - upangle
