Daily in March 2016

Welcome everyone to the "Daily in" March 2016 Challenge (DIC) here at Pentax Forums!

Aim of the Game: Shoot daily with any camera/lens you want and post one picture each day of the month to this group challenge. We want this challenge to be similar in culture to the popular "Single In" Challenge (SIC) here at Pentax Forums, but to be able to use any lens we want each day of the month. There is no limitation to what camera gear you use for this challenge.

Commenting: Posting our pictures to the daily threads for the month allows other participants to comment on them. Conversely, itís hoped that you will comment on the pictures posted by the other members as well. Please donít be shy if you donít have much photographic experience or are a Forum newbie. Your personal reactions to photographs are just as valid as any. We aim to be a friendly group and with regular commenting, weíll soon be enjoying the camaraderie.

The rewards: Daily shooting and sharing is great fun. As with the Single In Challenge, youíll see what other members achieve with their selected lenses - sometimes the same lens youíve chosen for that day. In the comment banter youíll pick up many tips on photographic technique generally, including post processing. As the month progresses it can become quite demanding to keep shooting and posting every day (itís a challenge, remember) but youíll always be encouraged by other participants. Worried about LBA? - this game wonít help you fight it!

Important Note: This 'Daily Challenge' was started in January 2016 by a few regular members of the 'Single In Challenge' who after participating in many Single In Challenges themselves desired to have a similar daily shooting/posting challenge format and interactive culture while being able to switch our lenses/gear up during the month whenever desired. That said, if you're here considering whether or not to accept the Daily Challenge for a month and haven't yet tried a month of the Single In Challenge, we enthusiastically encourage you to try one... Simply put, spending a whole month with the same lens is a great way to get to know your gear.

Some of us may be participating in both the Daily Challenge and the Single In challenges for the month. When this is the case, it should be a different image posted to each challenge for the same day.

How to participate:

1. Join the Group to be able to post pictures; you only have to do this once. The groupís name is ďDaily Challenge (By Month)Ē. Youíll find a clickable link on that forum page to join the group.

2. Store your pictures in an on-line album somewhere. This could be the Pentax Forum, or others such as Flickr, etc. Flickr is the most commonly used host, and makes it easiest for others to comment on your pictures.

3. Post your daily image into the daily picture thread in the Daily Challenge (By Month) group page. That image should link to where your image is hosted. That's it!

** If you are going to be linking to a Pentax Forum album, just ask for advice below if needed.

** If you are posting a link to Flickr, just click on the sharing icon below your selected picture and a window will open displaying the BB code. Copy it and paste the BB code into the Daily Challenge (By Month) group page in the Pentax Forum.

**If you're a Flickr member, then here is the Flickr group to join, then please remember to add your posted images to it: Daily Challenges (Pentax Forums)

Each day, youíll see a new thread of pictures grow in the Daily Challenge (By Month) group page. By clicking on each picture in the daily thread you should be redirected to the photographerís image page wherever it's hosted and there you will be able to add a comment and read those of others.

When you post your picture each day to the daily thread, please specify the camera/lens combination with your picture eg 'K5 & DA15 Ltd'. This makes it easy for others to note what combo youíre using. This is especially important for this Daily Challenge where our chosen lenses for each day may be changing frequently.

The thread youíre reading now is the 'Discussion Thread' for Game > Daily In March 2016 Challenge. It's is a separate discussion thread from the picture posting thread referred to above, so youíll probably want to subscribe to this discussion thread here as well to keep up with activities and develop a rapport with other Challenge members. Itís the place to ask questions, offer advice, share concerns, suggest improvements, and often just participate in general banter related to this monthís challenge.

This FAQ (made by Zorglub) may be helpful which was created for the Single In Challenge. Everything there also applies to this Daily Challenge with the key difference being that we are not binding this challenge to the use of one lens for the whole month. There is no limitation to what camera gear you use for this challenge.

Here we go! It is easier than it might seem at first. If you miss any days, donít worry. If you have any problems, please ask. Come and try!

So who's joining me for March?

I'll have a go. I think March is going to be rather busy and I might miss a few days, but I really enjoy this challenge. So try I must (if you'll excuse the Yoda speak).

While I've done a fair number of Single in challenges, this will be my first time in the Daily challenge...will be good to get back in the swing of daily shooting and enjoying and learning from photos posted by all the other participants. Let the game begin!

I may regret it with the way the next two months are looking, but I'm going to give it another go this month. I'm having Total Knee Replacement on the 29th so I'll miss a couple of days then and the first few days of April.

I'm probably going to live vicariously thru you all, i may post a few but work got the better of me towards the end of last month and it looks like this month will be the same as well.

It's already tomorrow in my neck of the woods, which means I'll be a day late when I get a chance to post tomorrow (or later today...) - if you see what I mean

Dead tired now - good night!

Debating whether to throw my hat in or not for the month. I'd basically be spamming 'This Old House' style shots since I'm sort of busy trying to fix up the new place so we can move in (hopefully) by April.

I have barely even touched the camera since we found we were approved for the new place last month.

Send 'em on! Others have done some of those and they can be very interesting.
