It's tempting to join Maarten but I'm not sure yet how, and I haven't really thought about three different challenges from last year.

I just looked at my "Day Prime" list and for the first 8 weeks I have 2 or more primes I need to use (some weeks more than 10), after that it gets a bit more quiet with usually just 1 lens per week (or none).

So my current plan is to concentrate on "Day Prime" for the first 8 weeks and then start a challenge with three distinctly different challege topics every week. That will also give me some time to think about which challenges I choose. Initial thought would be 1: Architecture, 2: Landscape and 3: Macro but hopefully I will come up with something more creative

Let me know if you would like me to start a new thread for this year for you in the challenges subforum, I can take your first week post from "open views" and move that to the challenges forum (you need admin or mod powers to do that ).

Same for anyone else joining, you need mod rights to start something new in the challenges forum, but I can do that for anyone who wishes to do that for a new year long challenge. Just post below and your wish is my command.

Thanks @Pegelli

I'm open to giving it another try this year with Maarten.
I haven't decided what my weekly themes will be, but I would like to continue the '2 week' break rule of the first challenge, and I'm going to propose 12 'wild card' photos over the year as well. Anything from archive or something unrelated to the original themes.

It is a little harder planning anything in this Pandemic world so I may need to use these options if we go into a lockdown or I get ill etc,

Great Wētāpunga, just start your thread somewhere and let me know, then I'll move it to the challenges subforum.

I've given my participation some more thought and I couldn't resist the pull, so I'm in with three photo's per week, I will stay by my initial thought of three broad subjects: Architecture, Landscape (can also be forest or cityscape) and Closeup/Macro. It's three subjects I relatively comfortable with but the challenge is going to be going out every week and shooting all three. Lens/camera choice is free, if possible I will use other lenses used in challenges that week (day prime or prime months) but if that doesn't fit so be it.

I'll try to blend in a fair amount of HDR, panorama, focus stacking, less conventional cropping ratio's and B&W conversion to generate extra variety.

That makes three confirmed for this year, but there's plenty room for more

I guess I need something of a focus so I am minded to do a simpler Project 150.

Three pics a week.

1. Blast from the past - I got a box of slides down from the attic over Christmas and took some quick shots of some with a lightbox and macro lens. The results are not as bad as I feared.

2 & 3 Prime of the week. I don't have 50 primes, but I do have a lot - which means that most of them don't get much use. So it's time to get them out and put them to work. I will commit to using them all at least once and none more than twice. To make it less stressful than 2021 two shots in this theme. I may also piggy-back on any prime challenge (eg Oktoberfest / Week 50). To make it a little less straightforward one in colour and one B&W.

Wow, so good to see all of you join in on the fun. Good that you keep close to what seems possible as a challenge.

So nice to see folks wrap up the 2021 Photo 150 challenge, and there is energy to start up a 2022 initiative!

I fell off the 2021 Photo 150 project about 1/3 of the way in … for me, it was so hard to maintain that schedule. I have learned that I take pics when I want to, no more, no less. I can't let the calendar dictate my personal pace in the long run.

I still need to spend a lot of time organizing my old archives. I was hoping to attack that more in 2021 with the help of this challenge, but sadly, no, LOL.

The Dyxum Postcard Exchange is more my pace, or a shorter challenge like Week 50mm.

I'll make sure I poke my head into the 2022 Photo 150 Challenge thread from time to time. Happy New Year, and good luck to the 2022 Photo 150 challengers!

I haven't really come up with a plan for a new 150 challenge, but as I don't do the other challenges very often I think I ought to come up with something. I'm still pondering.

Hi @Howard_S

I've been pondering as well (on themes).
I'm thinking of 3 themes.

1. A telephoto theme. (This would let me give the Tamron 150-500 some use this year, and if I'm struggling, squeeze in a shot of the cats with a 135mm or 85mm).
2. A scenic theme- which I would like to stretch to include seascapes, landscapes and other objects/structures that are, well, scenic. I'm hoping seascapes will dominate.
3. A creative theme- this may only be black-and-white, but there's more I want to try with HDR, Panoramas, and even video.

In addition I'm going to give myself 12 wild cards. Shots that I like, but don't fit neatly into any of the themes above.

I've loved my tele-theme in 2021. Great to take it out on weekly basis & so many keepers came out of it
