Day Prime 2018 is up!

And no more pic-a-day pressure!

This year we are organising Day Prime 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 8 - Sunday January 14 and is for focal lengths from 8mm to 14mm. 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 8 or after January 14.

This gives you a lot more flexibility and a lot less stress! 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.

I love Day Prime and the associated lense hoarding but Pic-a-Day pressure got to me last year. This year I will stick with Meyer (and Meyer hoarding) and take it easy.

2017 was a swiss cheese of days missed for me. My 2018 new year resolve is to make every Prime Day count!

(the 'round' lenses I've used usually reveal a lot around the edges).

The Meike 6.5 F2 is a 190 degree circular fisheye lens for APS-C. I have two wide converters on the front of it here to get it down to 3 mm. The converters are way too small for the lens, so I just get a small circular image in the middle which I have cropped here.

Here is a normal shot with it.

I will start the Day Prime 2018 threads today.
Imo it's a good idea to bend the rules a bit to allow members more time to make photos.

I for one never participated in the prime challenge, because I didn't want to pollute it (since I'm very good at that!).
because the shown samples were often nothing short of magnificent.
apart from that I'm no 'lenskeeper'. yet? ;-)
but every time an old -or even 'unknown'- lens came unto my path, I browsed the thread, (hoping) to find samples.
(there were not too many dedicated other mount lens threads at the time).

I could set one up for 2018. It basically runs itself thereafter give or take a few reminders (that everybody is free to post as well).

2017 was 47 pages, so while that's not gigantic I think it's worthwhile to continue.

The Meyer group can also post some of their images there when taken on the right day.

To get a bit less strict we could allow pictures taken +/- 1 day. What do you think about that?

We're discussing the week prime idea and we will probably see some of those as well, but that should not stop day prime, there's only 52 weeks, and we want to see pictures from longer lenses as well

Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

I say we just throw the pictures and comments in one thread like we have been doing for Day Prime. And if someone wants they can still shoot on the precise day.

Week prime would give the participants a bit more freedom and flexibility, but wouldn't that require more effort from setting up the weekly threads by the moderators?

I'll think about it. Should Day Prime become Week Prime? It's an idea, yes.

My personal plan is to devote less time to Day Prime. I started something new and I need time for that.

All ideas to generate more participation are welcome!

It would certainly help participants as I`m in the same boat with workdays and light..not that weekends are always free of family demands!

Quite a few have suggested a week 35-40something for example as week 50 falls in the deep dark for many of us.

I've always liked the idea and have participated when I could, but still not very often. The rules defeat participation for me by requiring the specific day. Most times, the day is a weekday and I, as well as many others, am working. Then if I have enough energy left, weather and light play a role.

Me too. I missed quite a few days last year. A little flexibility with days would have had some more from me.

It would be nice to spead out things. I like the week 50 idea. Maybe group the days into weeks. Like 1 to 7 mm lenses anytime this week ending on Sunday. 8 to 14 mm lenses anytime next week. Etc...
