It's also been fun seeing everyone else's efforts.


Getting a peak and other folks archives has been very nice.

When I get that itch for full-frame, I just grab a film body, LOL. If I do end up with an A7 variant, I'd probably just get a 50mm lens at first, re-create my early days of photography -- SRT-101 with a Rokkor 50, or XE-7 with a 50mm.


That may just mean you have a lot more *newer* gear than me. :-)

It's been fun, mostly.

I've enjoyed getting out a different lens each week, even the less good ones, and trying out techniques I rarely (or never) used in the past. My landscape theme is the most challenging - I'm just not very good at spotting photogenic scenes.

It's also been fun seeing everyone else's efforts.

For me, this challenge has been at a good pace. I only had to go to all archive shots just one week. The hardest part for me is thinking up a theme for each week. I do notice that I take the same/similar shots every year, . But, ultimately, nothing stays the same, so the shots are different enough.

Keep up the momentum, folks.


Agreed Art! Just enough challenge for me to stay in it and not drop off. The perfect balance to even get me exited again and looking at my old gear. I even started shopping for lenses and bodies again. (that's when you know the addiction is in full effect)

dCap is still shooting. I see him on Instagram and Twitter. He's off of Sony gear again though, focusing on a 365 day project instead using his smartphone and new Fuji.

Maybe go with a self portrait at your work station? Just a thought as I considered what I'd do in I was in crunch like yours.


I like that idea. Maybe I just take pics in and around the office until this project clears. I mean, they may not be as wonderful as the seascapes but at least I'll be doing something.

Thanks.

I would imagine it would give you a few minutes of creative respite from the stress of the workload. Looking forward for you to keep going!

Yes, what happened to dCap? Disappeared entirely.

I'm enjoying the challenge, especially the discipline of reviewing a pile of photos I took nine years ago and getting them down to a viewable set (at least for my wife and I).

The ultrawide aspect ratio (typically 64:27 or 21:9) is enjoyable too. I just wish we could show them wider and higher than the limits imposed by the forum. Cinemascope is meant to be Big.

My vintage digital thread is an outlet for photos taken with cameras that are no longer current. I really ought to delve further in to the camera archive and take more new photos with stuff that is properly vintage.

And the pictures being produced by others are an inspiration, as ever.

Onwards and upwards!

I think it's working great for me so far, only a pity that our great inspirator dCap seems to have bailed out

All my three projects are helping me and enjoyable

I especially like the weeks I have no prime and comitted to a shot somewhere in a zoom range. Somehow I'm using that as an exercise to be much more careful with framing and avoid distractions at the edges.

The vintage digital macro is a blast, Especially the challenge to manually focus in the dim viewfinder of my KM5D is sometimes a challenge but when you hit it right the files are easy to work with and have great colours. The A700 is much easier to work with but the files are a bit harsher, which is not always what I want in my macros.

And the dig in the archive gives me a good look at all the junk I kept, sometimes there's something overlooked that's postable but there's some candidates selected for the wastebasket as well. At this moment they just get a black flag, but after some time they will all be permanently deleted.

All in all, I'm happy and find it relatively easy to keep up.

That's great @onsplekkie. I'm glad you're getting more comfortable with all of your gear. For me, the pace of the project has been perfect, not too much pressure vs. a "picture a day". Pic-a-day just seems way too tough.

Keep post, all, whatever fits your schedule best!

Cannot believe that I've just posted week 12!

Finaly got some more feeling for longer focal lenghts thnx to this challenge.
The creative project realy puches me to go out and 'catch' anything at all.
