Single in January 2013

Santa bring you anything nice? Making a resolution to shoot more?

Ever wanted to find fame and glory by being Explored on Flickr? .......... Then why not join the Single in Challenge?

The idea is simple:

Every day, take a picture with your chosen lens of the month and post it to the thread of the day. Then other members of the group will comment on your shot. Don't be shy and comment on other member's pictures too.

Here are some more details

1. You need to join the group to post
2. This thread is only for discussing the January 2013 Challenge - if you have a problem this is where you ask.
3. You can upload your pictures to an album in the forums here, Flickr, Picassa .......... Here are some of mine on the forums and on Flickr.
4. Each day has a thread of it's own. Here is January 1st.
5. This is how to put your pictures from an album on the forums to the daily thread


if you post from Flickr you need to copy and paste the BBCode




This all must sound a real pain but by Day 3 you will be an expert! I promise

The only strict rule we have is it must be a Pentax or Ricoh body and the pictures you post must be from the same lens.

If you miss a day don't worry.

We are a very friendly, very international bunch. Come and try!

1. Read the directions above.
2. Post your general discussion thoughts here. Like say, I'm going use the XX lens this month, or wow, this is really cool.
3. Post one image daily in the daily thread. The first day is linked into the directions.
4. Have fun and remember that this is a personal challenge.

Before you can post you should go here Monthly Photo Challenges - PentaxForums.com
On the righthand side there is an option which says "Group tools"
From there you can choose the option to join the group.

After two months at the normal-to-wide end, I feel the need to work on a longer FL. My current plan is to use the "Bokina", i.e. Tokina-built Vivitar Series I 90/2.5 macro.

I will be joining this month afterall. My lens of choice is the Sears 135mm f2.8 with closeups. My mechanic will be here the middle of next week to fix my car and in the meantime I can shoot around the yard.

Further to the suggestions above, if you are a Flickr user, you may want to join Flickr: Single Challenges (Pentax only)


See you in January! (hopefully more than you all saw me in DEC!!)

Thanks for getting things rolling for Jan, Pat. I am going to be there, DA35mm ltd, I think I will use. My position is a bit iffy, as I am very stretched for a couple of reasons, (Mum failing fast, my eye/s not good, operation in Feb, and now I am suffering with a hernia, op for that as well. Ho hum! ain't life grand. But I will give it 'my best shot'.

I am afraid I will have to sit January out. I have a lot of responsibilities waiting for me at work and at home next month and I don't think I can do justice to the daily challenge. I have already used every lens I own twice over the past two years so there is nothing that is calling to me at the moment. I will check in and offer my support and witty praise along the way. I will soon miss the camaraderie so I will be back in a month or two depending on workload. I have also promised myself that one of the first photography related tasks I have to face in the new year is to do a serious purge of the many files currently cluttering my hard drive and throw out the ones I will never touch and process or even re-process some that I may have missed along the way.

Best of luck to all in January 2013, especially to those venturing in for the first time!

A daunting task!! good for winter weather though - I still have not decided on a lens, but what I have thought to throw out to the challengees.... put together an album / book / project to publish. I put together two photobooks in the last couple of months and made use of the Blurb seasonal discounts... all in - it was a very rewarding task - so while you are sorting and purging, be sure to tagg'em and put them into collections for the promise of a future publication.
