Single in April 2012

Yes it's a new month and a new lens choice!

Everyone is welcome, veterans and newbies alike.
It's spring in the northern hemisphere, and autumn "down under", so there's really no excuse for not getting out and about and taking photos.

It will give you a chance to really get to know how your camera and selected lens can really perform together, and it will foster camaraderie with other PF users, and forge great friendships!

And it is a lot of fun mostly (although a little pressure on us isn't really a bad thing).

I hope everyone will consider joining in.

The basic idea of the challenge is
  1. Take a picture each day using the same lens for the whole month (it's ok / inevitable to miss a couple of days - so don't worry)
  2. Upload the picture to a "Single in April 2012" album in your album space on the forums or you can use Flickr (Single Challenge link) or other hosting service
  3. Post the picture to the daily thread here.
  4. Comment on other member's pictures. All comments will be warmly received from the basic "I like it" to "Well, I think you channelled Ansel Adams wonderfully!"
  5. Have fun, learn lots about your camera / lens combination, and yourself!
EASY!

You can freely select any single lens to use for the whole month, and it's OK to use extension tubes, macro add-ons, teleconverters etc. However, please include the lens details when you are posting your pictures.

If you are unsure how to post pictures please ask in this thread or check the threads from previous months.

There is no fixed theme for this month, but we the group may be open to theme and inspiration suggestions

Jack.

We're solidly into summer here. This is the nice time before real summer.

February - DA15 - Single in February (DA15) - a set on Flickr
March - SuperTakumar 105f2.8 - Single in March (SuperTak 105) - a set on Flickr

April contenders
SMC takumar 55f1.8 - back to back takumars?
K35f3.5 - I think this is the one...
F35-70 - a zoom?
other

Hey the gangs all back! (maybe)

Abacus07 - K35/3.5 is an excellent choice.

I'm going to be using an "old 55", an Auto CHINON 1.4/55mm M42 all manual lens.

I am seriously considering April. I took off March due to some extreme pet and adult child related stresses and I have had few opportunities to get out with my camera (or even the creative energy for that matter). I did just purchase a 10-17 fish-eye and although I am anxious about attempting a whole month with it I have seen so many others create magic under the same circumstances so I may just give it a shot. I am also planning to buy a K-5 once stock returns to my local camera store so I may even have a new camera along the way.

Welcome back jmschrei.

We've had another new user join on the flickr site, her id is anthologie, and she says in her profile she is from Winnipeg, but nearly all of her photos are from Kitsilano, Vancouver.

A big warm welcome Kate! I like your photostream, can't wait to see your "single in" photos.

Jack.

Great to see many people signing up early. I think I am in for another month but I have no idea which lens to use.
